Mini Centrifuge

Mini Centrifuge

A mini centrifuge is a compact and small-sized laboratory instrument used for low-capacity centrifugation applications. It is designed for quick and efficient separation of small volumes of liquids and particles in microtubes or other small containers. Mini centrifuges are commonly used in research laboratories, medical clinics, and educational settings where space is limited, and small sample volumes need to be processed.




Key features and components of a mini centrifuge include:

  1. Compact Design: Mini centrifuges are compact and have a small footprint, making them ideal for use in crowded workspaces or areas with limited bench space.
  2. Low Capacity Rotor: The rotor of a mini centrifuge is specifically designed to accommodate small sample tubes or microtubes. It typically holds a few tubes, usually ranging from 0.2 mL to 2.0 mL in capacity.
  3. Lid with Safety Interlock: Mini centrifuges have a lid with a safety interlock mechanism to prevent the centrifuge from operating when the lid is open. This ensures user safety during operation.
  4. Control Panel: Mini centrifuges often have a simple and user-friendly control panel with buttons to set the required speed and timer settings.
  5. Speed and Timer Settings: Users can adjust the rotational speed and set a timer for the centrifugation process based on the specific application and sample requirements.
  6. Motor: Mini centrifuges are typically powered by an electric motor, and they reach relatively lower maximum speeds compared to larger, high-capacity centrifuges.
  7. Power Source: Mini centrifuges are powered by electricity, either through a power adapter or battery operation. Some models may have both options for added portability.

Mini centrifuges are commonly used for a variety of applications, including quick spin-downs of small volumes of biological samples, microfiltration, microcentrifugation, and rapid pelletization of cells or particles. They are particularly useful when working with small sample volumes and conducting time-sensitive experiments.
