Default Best bench top centrifuge?



Hi,

Anyone have any recommendations for an excellent bench top centrifuge, mainly for RIAs and blood work?

I've been looking at the eppendorf 5810R
Am currently using a Sigma 3-16k, and need to get one of similar capabilities, but am kind of new to all this, and there is a lot of talk about buckets and rotors etc etc. Need to get up-to-speed on the Jargon...

Cheers in advance!

I have had good experience with eppendorf centrifuges (particulary 5810R). They are versatile as the default rotor can be adapted to centrifuge different kind of tubes even in the same run. You can even ask for microtiter (or other size) plates adapters. Not to mention its interface is fully digital.

My mistake. You need a different rotor to centrifuge plates. This rotor comes with the adaptors where you place the plates. In other words, "adaptor" is as I call the swinging metallic thing where you put the plates to be centrifuged. They would be the same thing as the metallic buckets and are removable as well.
