PlateFuge microplate centrifuge


PlateFuge microplate centrifuge

Benchmark’s PlateFuge™ is the first “mini” sized centrifuge with a swing out rotor for microplates. Centrifugation 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 (9x10 in.), the PlateFuge™ includes a uniquely designed, swing out rotor (patented) capable of securing two microplates. The easily accessible rotor chamber includes two plate carriers that rest at a 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 a horizontal position. Any droplets on the walls of the plate, quickly concentrate into the well bottoms.

With a g-force of 600 xg, most samples can be spun down 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 4 seconds. Plates can then be easily removed from the rotor.
