Product Description

Compact, quiet, and powerful are just a few of the features found on the Benchmark Scientific Z216-M High Speed Micro-centrifuge. Add to this, the versatility of eight available rotor options, and the result is the ideal micro-centrifuge for the modern molecular biology laboratory.


All common microtubes (0.2 ml, 0.5 ml, 1.5 ml, 2.0 ml) can be accepted as well as PCR strips, hematocrit tubes, and even 5.0 ml centrifuge tubes. Advanced microprocessor controls allow for setting/displaying of the rotational speed in either rpm or rcf. In addition to retrieving saved programs, the easy to use front panel can adjust accel/decel rates, and change the end of run alarm tone. Despite a remarkably small footprint, the Z216-M offers a uniquely designed 44 x 1.5 ml dual row rotor, nearly doubling the capacity when compared to traditional micro-centrifuges.
