This centrifuge rotor is so cool, it should have its own infomercial

The challenge of any "all in one" invention is to strike the right balance between practical and over-kill. 

The Swiss army knife is a good example of how to do it right. Every twist reveals a new tool that is useful, non-repetitive and cleverly designed to maximize space without sacrificing function. 

The new 6 x 85ml centrifuge Combi-Rotor by Hermle for their Z326 model centrifuges looks to be equally as versatile. 

Straight out of the box, this hermetically sealed centrifuge rotor can hold six 7ml tubes (like a blood draw or vacutainer tube, six 15ml conical tubes and six 85ml tubes all at the same time. 

Optional inserts may be purchased to convert the 85ml tube slots into a 50ml tube holder.

While there are few, if any, applications that call for such a variety to be used at once, the rotor gives the laboratory many options for a wide range of uses. 

As more and more labs confront funding uncertainties, it is important for labs to find ways to do more with less. A centrifuge rotor that can perform both clinical and research functions is a welcome gift to fiscally aware PIs and lab managers. 

With a maximum speed of over 13,000 rpm, or nearly 21,000 times gravity, the new Combi-Rotor delivers high performance and safety. 

Compatible with the Hermle Z326 line of refrigerated and non-refrigerated centrifuges, innovations like these make it easier than ever to be Happy with Hermle
