PCV-6000 Combined Centrifuge/Vortex Mixer

A variable-speed combined centrifuge/vortex mixer for programmed sequences of spin and mix operations or for independent centrifuging and vortex-mixing of multiple microtubes.

  • Centrifugation speed 1000 to 6000rpm
  • Multi-spin enables consecutive spin and mix phases of multiple tubes – tubes are loaded into the rotor for spinning and remain in position for vortex mixing, saving time and labour. In addition, lower reagent volumes can be used, providing a further saving.
  • Simple push-buttons and a clear 2-line LCD status display enable accurate and repeatable setting of spin and mix levels and times.
  • Spin and mix phases can be linked in sequences which can be repeated up to 999 times.
  • The Multi-spin™ is supplied as standard with two interchangeable rotors for 12 x 1.5 ml and 12 x 0.5 ml + 12 x 0.2 ml microtubes. Optional accessory rotors – for
    16 and 18 microtubes and for two 8 well 0.2 ml strips – allow for quick and easy changes of application.
  • A safety interlock stops the rotor when the lid is opened to ensure you and your workplace remain safe.
  • Compact design and extremely quiet in operation – fits neatly and unobtrusively into the workspace
