Eppendorf 5424 Centrifuge

Centrifuge 5424 is the new laboratory standard. With its 24-place capacity and speed up to 21,130 × g it is perfectly equipped for all modern molecular biology applications in Eppendorf and PCR tubes. When working with spin columns kits, the Eppendorf Kit rotor® with raised rim solves the issue of open tube caps shearing off during the elution step.

  • The Centrifuge 5424 is designed for separating liquid substance mixtures with different densities, in particular, for processing and analyzing samples from the human body in in-vitro diagnostic applications to ensure that the in-vitro diagnostic device can be used according to its intended purpose. This centrifuge including components is an in-vitro diagnostic device according to Directive 98/79/EC of the European Parliament and the Council dated October 27, 1998. Eppendorf centrifuges are exclusively intended for indoor use by trained specialists.
