Versatile microcentrifuge, ideal for clinical, molecular and bacteriological applications

The Micro 12 high speed microcentrifuge is perfect for small volume samples, quick spin downs, cell and bacteria separations and various nucleic acid tests.

Micro 12 can also be used to separate DNA due to its maximum spin speed of 14,000 rpm and a maximum relative centrifugal force of 16,000 x g.

Micro 12 is ideal for use in busy labs where space is at a premium. The brushless motor ensures whisper-quiet operation whilst the compact footprint of the centrifuge is the equivalent to an A4 sheet of paper.

The centrifuge's flexibility means that it can accommodate tubes up to 2 mL in diameter, allowing for a range of different applications.

Easy centrifugation in 3 steps

1.  Pipette sample into tube.                                 
2.  Place tube and counterweight into rotor.
3.  Select spin speed and time.
