Benchmark Scientific’s MC-24 Touch Microcentrifuge is the first high speed microcentrifuge in its class to feature touch screen control. In addition to this next generation control panel, the centrifuge also offers high speed (up to 13,500 rpm/16,800 xg) and a unique COMBI-Rotor™ that accepts both standard microtubes (1.5/2.0ml) and PCR tubes/strips (0.2ml), making this the perfect partner for any molecular biology laboratory.
The large, color touch screen shows actual speed (in rpm or rcf) along with set and remaining time. Up to 9 speed/time profiles can be stored in memory and the home screen displays a “mySpin” icon for instant recalls a designated favorite profile.
Supplied with Benchmark’s unique COMBI-Rotor™, the MC-24 Touch will accept 24 x 1.5/2.0ml tubes and 2 strips of 0.2ml tubes (16 x 0.2ml) without requiring separate adapters. Samples are kept cool, even during extended runs at the maximum speed setting by a proprietary air flow system that moves air evenly and quietly throughout the chamber.
Competitor centrifuges can raise sample temperatures up to +15°C. The MC-24 Touch’s unique dual-airflow system limits temperature increase to only +9°C, keeping samples cool and stable.
The MC-24 Touch is cold room safe and carries a 2 year warranty.
