The Medifuge small benchtop centrifuge from Thermo Scientific provides versatility within a compact footprint.

The Thermo Scientific Medifuge benchtop centrifuge features a 2-in-1 hybrid DualSpin rotor that has interchangeable fixed-angle and swinging buckets to facilitate switching between applications provides the flexibility to perform several applications on a single platform.

The centrifuge incorporates safety and environmental sustainability features such as an emergency lid-lock release; operation at less than 56 dBA; and a lightweight composite rotor.

The centrifuge features a display with intuitive controls and a one-click closure. The four customizable programs allow users to run routine protocols; three deceleration profiles – standard, soft and brake-off – are designed to provide optimal separation.


The centrifuge can accommodate tubes, from 1.4 mL to 15 mL, with two spacer options.
