How can I calculate the RCF value from the RPM value for my protocols as precisely as possible?
Use the menu function "ROTOR" for this purpose. By specifying the rotor and the vessel used, the required RCF value can be calculated exactly.
What is behind the "Finished Time" function of the Centrifuge 5425?
What is behind the "Finished Time" function of the Centrifuge 5425?
With the “Finished Time” function, you can see the time elapsed since the end of the centrifuge run.
What does the "Timer” function of the Centrifuge 5425 stand for?
What does the "Timer” function of the Centrifuge 5425 stand for?
With the "Timer" function, the start time can be delayed. This can be used for many nucleic acid purification kits where the buffer on the column should be incubated before the sample is centrifuged.
Are the rotors with QuickLock® lid of Centrifuge 5425 aerosol-tight?
Are the rotors with QuickLock® lid of Centrifuge 5425 aerosol-tight?
Yes, all rotors of the 5425 with QuickLock® lid are aerosol-tight.
Why are there two 24-place rotors for the Centrifuge 5425?
Why are there two 24-place rotors for the Centrifuge 5425?
The rotors have a different coating. The 24-place standard rotor FA-24x2 is with the anodized surface good resistant against chemicals and corrosion. The special rotor FA-24x2-PTFE with the PTFE coating is characterized by a even more higher resistance to chemicals.
