Eppendorf’s refrigerated 18- and 24-place microcentrifuges can be used in molecular biology, biochemistry and biotechnology.

Applications for the 5418 R and 5424 R include the isolation of DNA, RNA or proteins, pelletising of cells and aerosol-tight centrifugation of infectious samples.

They feature a small footprint, quiet operation and a Fasttemp function for quick pre-cooling.

The Eppendorf blue rotary knobs enable quick, intuitive setting of parameters, while the low access height allows easy loading and unloading of rotor and samples.

A colour-coded aerosol-tight rotor is included as standard with both models for enhanced laboratory safety and, even when operated without the rotor lid, noise levels are low.

The economical entry-level refrigerated Centrifuge 5418 R is ideal for routine molecular biology applications.

With 18 places for 1.5/2ml tubes, maximum speed is 16,873 G (14,000rpm) and the Quicklock rotor lid saves time when opening and closing.

Temperature range is 0 to 40C, with a constant 4C at maximum speed and continuous cooling after centrifugation for optimal sample condition.

Centrifuge 5424 R is a versatile and powerful 24-place refrigerated model, available with rotary knobs or an easy-to-clean keypad.

Temperature range is -10 to 40C, with a guaranteed 4C at the maximum speed of 21,130 G (15,000rpm) and continuous cooling at the end of the run.

Additional rotor options include a special Kit rotor for 18 spin columns, designed with an extra-high rim to support open tube lids during centrifugation, as well as a special PTFE-coated rotor for increased chemical resistance and easy cleaning.

Both 5418 R and 5424 R benefit from Eppendorf’s patented compressor technology, which reduces vibrations and protects samples.
