Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R - High-Speed Centrifuge
The Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R is a non-automatic centrifuge for the separation of liquid substance mixtures from the human body and is specifically intended to be used as an accessory together with an in vitro diagnostic device and to enable its use according to its intended purpose. This product complies with the requirements of the EU In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR) 2017/746. Eppendorf centrifuges are exclusively intended for indoor use by trained specialists.
Do I need IVD?
Since May 2022, the EU IVD Regulation (IVDR) 2017/746 replaces the IVD Directive 98/79/EC under which a variety of Eppendorf products were registered as IVD products. The new IVDR, and resulting recommendations from leading European Life Science Organizations, provide more clarity on product types that may be classified as in-vitro diagnostic medical devices, which has led to some changes in our IVD product portfolio.
Eppendorf continues to offer centrifuges in two versions: An EU-IVD compliant version for diagnostic applications (affixed with the CE IVD mark according to the EU In Vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR) 2017/746), and a General Lab Product version for research applications.
Eppendorf pipettes, pipette tips and tubes affixed with the CE IVD mark are discontinued in May 2022. To ensure that you can keep working with our products in IVD applications, the intended use of our "General Lab Product" pipettes, pipette tips and tubes has been changed however: Eppendorf pipettes, pipette tips and tubes without CE IVD mark are now suitable for all general laboratory applications including IVD applications and can be purchased and used as such since January 2022 (in the EU and EFTA countries).

Centrifuge 5430 and 5430 R combine the best features of a microcentrifuge (small footprint) and multipurpose centrifuge (versatility) in one instrument. The high-speed centrifuges offer centrifuge rotors for Eppendorf tubes and PCR strips, but also rotors for microplates and 15 or 50 mL conical tubes.
Additional Eppendorf QuickLock® centrifuge rotors are now available in the rotor program, including 48-place rotors (1.5 mL or 2.0 mL), a 16-place rotor for Eppendorf Tubes 5.0 mL and a swing-bucket rotor (24 x 1.5 mL or 2.0 mL). With their unmatched versatility, Centrifuge 5430 and Centrifuge 5430 R are the flagship products among the Eppendorf microcentrifuge portfolio.
Available as keypad or knob variant
Simple and safe handling
Aerosol-tight Eppendorf QuickLock rotors close with just one quarter of a turn. This not only saves you time during everyday use; it also takes strain off your wrist.
The compressor at the back of the Centrifuge 5430 R, the refrigerated version of Centrifuge 5430, is compact and has a low access height.
Advanced operating system
Centrifuges 5430 and 5430 R come with an advanced operating system, making them more energy efficient due to the smart ECO shut-off and FastTemp pre-cooling functions. They each have a menu-driven, multilingual operation menu with a large backlit display that allows you to save up to 99 user-defined programs and five program keys for easy access to routine programs.
In addition to the standard FastTemp pre-cooling program, Eppendorf high-speed centrifuge Centrifuge 5430 R features the unique software option called FastTemp pro®. The FastTemp pro function is available for fast automated pre-cooling based on pre-programmable times and dates. FastTemp pro can be set to a specific date or as a repetitive event on specified days of the week. Simply turn the centrifuge into standby mode when you leave your lab and let FastTemp pro take care of pre-cooling in the morning. This not only makes operation easy; it also saves you up to 90 % of energy overnight.
The ECO shut-off function saves you up to 88 % energy overnight by deactivating the compressor after 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours of inactivity to extend compressor life. This function can be deactivated in the menu settings.

Disposal of packaging
The packaging of the centrifuge contains different materials, this can include a wooden pallet, cardboard, a plastic dust cover, and some foam parts. Recycling of materials becomes more and more important every day: Are you aware that nearly all cardboard material is recycled in Europe? Our centrifuge packaging cardboard material consists of ca. 50% recycling material. Please support the global sustainability initiative of recycling valuable raw material by also collecting the freezer cardboard packaging material and disposing of it in the appropriate collection container at your organization. In respect to the plastic dust cover made of LD-PE and the foam parts, we recommend to select a dedicated recycling partner where PE material can be recycled. We suggest you contact your local waste hauler or facility management team to understand the available recycling options for your organization.
Disposal of instrument
Our centrifuges last for many years, but if they need to be replaced, we kindly ask you to fulfill local requirements for disposal of these instruments. We strongly recommend a certified local recycling partner with experience in instruments with active cooling. Keeping it “local“ reduces the impact of transportation, and the „certified“ aspect is recommended due to the safe and sustainable removal and recycling of the cooling liquids if it is a refrigerated centrifuge.
This piece of equipment was used in a laboratory and/ or was used to handle biological samples. Please keep in mind to adequately decontaminate the equipment which needs to be disposed. Check local requirements. For more information, get in contact with your local biosafety officer and/ or waste officer. Check if your local recycling partner has special instructions and/ or documentation requirements. You may also use the Eppendorf decontamination form sheet as guidance.
