What is an eppendorf 5702 centrifuge?

The Eppendorf 5702 is a laboratory centrifuge manufactured by Eppendorf, a well-known provider of laboratory equipment. The Eppendorf 5702 is a versatile and compact centrifuge designed for routine applications in research, clinical, and industrial laboratories.

Here are some key features and specifications of the Eppendorf 5702 centrifuge:

  1. Centrifugation Capacity: The Eppendorf 5702 can accommodate various types of tubes, including microcentrifuge tubes, conical tubes, and bottles. It typically has a capacity of up to 4 x 100 mL or 6 x 85 mL (swing-out rotor).
  2. Speed and RCF (Relative Centrifugal Force): The centrifuge offers variable speed settings ranging from a few hundred RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) up to a maximum speed of around 4,400 RPM. The corresponding RCF values can reach up to approximately 3,000 x g.
  3. Temperature Control: The Eppendorf 5702 can be equipped with a temperature control system, allowing users to perform temperature-sensitive centrifugation. Temperature options can range from -9°C to +40°C, depending on the model and available accessories.
  4. Rotor Options: The centrifuge can be used with different rotor types, including fixed-angle rotors and swing-out rotors. These rotor options enable specific applications such as sample separation, sedimentation, and gentle pelleting.
  5. Control Panel and Programming: The Eppendorf 5702 centrifuge typically features a user-friendly control panel that allows for easy programming of speed, time, and other parameters. It may offer pre-programmed protocols and the ability to save custom protocols for frequent use.
  6. Safety Features: The Eppendorf 5702 centrifuge incorporates safety mechanisms to ensure safe operation. These may include features like automatic rotor recognition, imbalance detection, lid-locking mechanisms, and emergency lid release.
  7. Applications: The Eppendorf 5702 centrifuge is suitable for routine applications such as sample preparation, cell culture, protein purification, and general centrifugation protocols in research and clinical laboratories.
