Product Description

Compact, quiet, and powerful are just a few of the features found on the Benchmark Scientific Z216-MK Refrigerated 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 Z216MK offers a uniquely designed 44 x 1.5ml dual row rotor, nearly doubling the capacity when compared to traditional micro-centrifuges.

In the Z216-MK model a powerful, compressor driven cooling system maintains temperatures as low as -20° C and is designed to reach 4° C (from room temperature) in less than 10 minutes.
