Microfuge® 16 – Beckman Centrifuge


Beckman Coulter Microfuge® 16 is a fast, compact and powerful microcentrifuge — for optimal pelleting on the bench or in the cold room. Made to be perfect for DNA, RNA, proteins, and virus cell isolation. Its maintenance- and hassle-free motor is able to spin up to 14,800 rpm (16,163 x g).

Ability to perform a wide variety of routine sample processes and micro-volume protocols, this microprocessor-controlled mini benchtop centrifuge generates centrifugal forces required for a wide variety of applications.

It features include: Easy-to-read interface | Displays of both speed (rpm) and force (rcf) | Selection of running duration, holding time, or pulse (short) run times.
