• Quickly spins down droplets in PCR plates
• Unique rotor design prevents samples spillage (patent pending)
• Accepts all popular PCR plates (skirted, semi, and non) and most microtiter plates
• Less than half the size of traditional centrifuges
Connscience’s Plate Personal Centrifuge comes with a swing out rotor for microplates. Centrifuging of plates before PCR ensures all reactants are in the bottom of the wells for optimized concentrations and improved yields.
In spite of its remarkably small footprint (9×10 in), the Plate Personal Centrifuge includes a uniquely designed, swing out rotor (patent pending) capable of securing 2 microplates. The easily accessible rotor chamber includes two plate carriers that rest at 75° angle. This allows plates to be inserted confidently without sealing tapes or caps. Upon closing the LID of the centrifuge, the rotor accelerates and the centrifugal force “swings” the plates into horizontal position. Any droplets on the walls of the plate, quickly concentrate into the well bottom.
With a g-force of over 400xg, most samples can be spun in less than 20 seconds. To end a run, simply open the LID and the automatic, electronic brake brings the rotor to a quick, smooth stop in about 7 seconds. Plates can then be easily removed from the rotor.
