Buying a lab centrifuge can be like shopping for a car. With the multitude of available options, how do you decide which choices are right for your needs? Here are some features to discuss with your lab equipment supplier that will help you determine the best solution.
1. RPM and G-force
RPM is a primary measurement of centrifuges, but it's too general to be the sole criteria. Consider the amount of g-force required for your samples, and the answer will give you more precise criteria in choosing a centrifuge.
2. Available Space in Your Lab
You wouldn't purchase a new piece of furniture without ensuring that it will fit in its designated space. Why would it be any different for your lab? If space is at a premium, there are a number of benchtop centrifuges with sufficient speed and power to handle most requirements.
It's unlikely that your needs are going to be the same as those of your labmates, so look for a centrifuge that accommodates a wide range of rotors.
The more you struggle with a centrifuge, the less time you have to perform actual work. Thanks to today's technology, you can find centrifuge models that are intuitive and easy to navigate.
