What is an eppendorf centrifuge 5417r?

The Eppendorf Centrifuge 5417R is a laboratory centrifuge manufactured by Eppendorf, a leading provider of laboratory equipment. The Eppendorf 5417R model is a refrigerated centrifuge, meaning it is equipped with a cooling system to maintain low temperatures during centrifugation, making it suitable for temperature-sensitive samples.

Here are some key features and specifications of the Eppendorf Centrifuge 5417R:

  1. Centrifugation Capacity: The 5417R can accommodate various types of tubes, including microcentrifuge tubes, PCR tubes, conical tubes, and bottles. It typically has a capacity of up to 30 x 1.5/2.0 mL tubes or 2 x 96-well plates.
  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 16,400 RPM. The corresponding RCF values can reach up to approximately 25,000 x g.
  3. Temperature Control: The 5417R is equipped with a refrigeration system, allowing users to maintain precise temperature control during centrifugation. It can cool samples to temperatures as low as -9°C to +40°C, depending on the model and available accessories.
  4. Rotor Options: The centrifuge can be used with various rotor types, including fixed-angle rotors and swing-out rotors. Different rotor configurations enable specific applications such as high-speed pelleting, low-speed separations, and large-volume processing.
  5. Control Panel and Programming: The 5417R centrifuge typically features a user-friendly control panel that allows for easy programming of speed, time, temperature, and other parameters. It may offer pre-programmed protocols and the ability to save custom protocols for frequent use.
  6. Safety Features: The Eppendorf 5417R 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 5417R centrifuge is suitable for a wide range of applications, including DNA/RNA isolation, protein purification, cell culture, sample preparation, and various centrifugation protocols in research, clinical, and industrial laboratories where temperature control is essential.
