Micro centrifuge machine, high speed 15000rpm

The KT-MC15K is the first and only compact micro centrifuge capable of achieving critical thresholds up to 15080 xg. For RNA/DNA sample extraction, sedimentation of biological components, biochemical and chemical analysis of trace samples. Its brushless, maintenance-free drive system makes it powerful, yet compact enough to fit every workstation with a personal centrifuge.

The KT-MC15K defines a new class of microcentrifuges: compact, fast, powerful and affordable. All aspects of microcentrifuge performance are considered without compromise. In addition to unparalleled speed (capable of achieving centrifugal speeds up to 15,000 rpm). The KT-MC15K also offers shorter acceleration/deceleration times, low noise operation, and its computer-designed airflow pattern minimizes sample temperature rise during extended high-speed runs.

Feature of micro centrifuge

All operating parameters are set using a conveniently located control knob. The large, bright LCD provides a clear indication of time and rpm or g-force. A separate momentary rotary button allows instant deceleration without having to set or interfere with any preset parameters. The rotor accepts 1.5 to 2.0ml tubes directly, as well as 0.5ml and 0.2ml tubes with optional adapters. For applications requiring sub-ambient temperatures, the KT-MC15K is freezer safe.

  • LCD provides a clear indication of time and rpm or RCF.
  • RPM/RCF setting as required.
  • The rotor is made of nylon material, with corrosion resistance, minimizes the temperature increases during longer run at high speed.
  • Accelerates and decelerates in just 14seconds.
  • A brushless motor provides noiseless performance and long service life.
  • Low sample heating (only 5°C after 30min, at max. speed).
  • A separate momentary short button permits instant spin downs.
  • Motor overheating protection function.
  • Safety operation: rotor imbalance diagnostic; automatic stop.

Small desktop centrifuge machine is the simplest centrifuge, mostly used for the rapid separation of small volume samples, can be used for personal use.

Its compact design helps save laboratory space. General small table centrifuge also has low speed and high speed distinction.It will also be equipped with a variety of lightweight rotors suitable for micro-volume sample separation experiments.

A centrifuge is a laboratory device used to separate heterogeneous mixtures or samples.

The centrifugation process can be used to separate particles or macromolecules such as cells, subcellular components, proteins and nucleic acids. The particles are separated from the solution according to their size, shape, density, viscosity of the medium and rotor speed. Various separation techniques can be performed using laboratory centrifuges. Basic applications include sample pelleting, sample separation, precipitation and preparation, and blood/urine testing.

Centrifugation works by spinning the sample loaded in the rotor at high speed. It goes through a centrifugation process that involves using centrifugal force to separate particles or macromolecules.

Centrifugal force is the apparent force used in centrifuges that pulls the rotating body away from the center of rotation. The substance in the solution will be deposited to the bottom of the container by the action of this force.

No, rotors have different maximum rcf/rpm. Fixed angle rotors have a maximum speed of 15000 rpm/21380 x g (for MCV and MCR), 15000 rpm/21382 x g (for TCV) and 16000 rpm/24,320 x g (for TCR). The automatic rotor identification system is only available for benchtop centrifuges.

The outer body of the centrifuge is made of electro-galvanized steel with an antimicrobial coating. Most rotors and rotor covers are made of aluminum. Transparent rotor covers, lids, rotors and barrels/adapters are made of polycarbonate or polypropylene.

Refrigerated centrifuges are best for handling temperature-sensitive samples such as DNA, RNA, proteins, and blood.

Relative centrifugal force (RCF) is measured as force x gravity or g force. It is the force exerted on the rotor contents, created by the rotation of the rotor. On the other hand, revolutions per minute (RPM) is described as the speed of a centrifuge. The force exerted on the contents varies with the size of the centrifuge rotor. RCF, not RPM, separates aqueous solutions in a centrifuge.

No, they can cause material damage and weaken mechanical resistance.

The differences between microcentrifuges and benchtop centrifuges are as follows: 1) Microcentrifuges can hold up to 88 ml, while benchtop centrifuges can hold up to 1500 ml. 2) The types of rotors that can be used in microcentrifuges are only fixed-angle rotors, and table-top centrifuges can use swing-out rotors and fixed-angle rotors. 3) The desktop centrifuge has an automatic rotor identification system, and there is no need to manually set the rotor type. Microcentrifuges, on the other hand, do not have an automatic rotor detection system, so manual setting of the rotor type is required.

Yes, for hospital centrifugation of blood and urine, we offer rotors for benchtop centrifuge models with a tube capacity of 30 x 15 ml and a maximum speed of 4500 rpm.

In fixed angle rotors, it is acceptable for the rotor not to be completely filled with tubes/adapters as long as the samples are of equal weight and placed symmetrically. However, in a swinging bucket rotor, all buckets/adapters must be placed in the carrier and samples are loaded diagonally into buckets/adapters of equal weight.
