Spectrafuge™ 16M High Speed Microcentrifuge

The Spectrafuge™ 16M Microcentrifuge is the perfect high speed compact microcentrifuge. Producing a maximum of 16,000 x g, it is the ideal unit for DNA applications. A brushless, maintenance free motor provides extremely fast acceleration and deceleration of the 18-place rotor and makes the Spectrafuge™ 16M one of the quietest microcentrifuges in its class.

Centrifuge Control

Speed and time are set with the control knobs on the front panel of the unit. A "Quick" button allows for momentary runs. A continuous flow of ambient air through the rotor chamber keeps the rotor and samples cool. For applications requiring sub-ambient temperatures, the Spectrafuge™ 16M may be operated in a cold room.

The Spectrafuge™ 16M Microcentrifuge is supplied complete with an 18 place rotor for 1.5/2.0 mL tubes. Smaller tubes are accommodated by adapters (sold separately). The optional Strip-Spin™ rotor adapter holds two 8 x 0.2 mL strips, typically used for PCR.

  • Brushless, maintenance-free motor
  • Exceptionally quiet and cool operation
  • High maximum speed/g-force
  • Extremely small footprint
