There are a few basic questions to ask yourself right off the bat to narrow down your choice including: What applications will my centrifuge be used for? How many tubes or samples do I use per day and shift? What types of rotors do I need? How many people will be using the centrifuge?
Answering the above questions will get you started on the right path, but its not over yet. Take a look at some of the different kinds of centrifuge characteristics below to narrow down your choices even more.
There are several kinds of centrifuge models. The best type for you will ultimately come down to your budget, available space and performance requirements. Whereas standard benchtop models are best for high-speed sample, other benchtop models, including the micro-centrifuge, offer a great deal more flexibility, convenience and cost-effectiveness.
After choosing the type of benchtop centrifuge model, there are many different choices within each of these categories that offer their own benefits. For example, for those using benchtop models looking to do DNA work, your best bet is to invest in a microcentrifuge for its compact design and convenience.
