Centrifuge 5804/ 5804 R - Benchtop Centrifuge
General Lab Product Version
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 5804/5804 R, a benchtop centrifuge renowned for its quality and reliability, offers you the most cost-effective solution for medium-throughput applications requiring speeds of up to 20,913 x g (14,000 rpm). Experience true versatility with a broad selection of rotors and adapters that accommodate tubes and bottles from 0.2 mL to 250 mL, as well as MTP, PCR and deep-well plates.
The swing-bucket rotor and adapters accommodate tubes and bottles from 0.2 mL to 250 mL whereas the fixed-angle rotors accomodate vessels from 0.2 mL to 85 mL. The plate rotor is ready for you to carry out centrifugation of all common types of multiwell plate, such as PCR, cell culture or deep-well plates.
Use Eppendorf swing-bucket centrifuge rotor Rotor S–4–72 for medium-throughput molecular applications. Offering speeds of up to 3,234 x g (4,200 rpm) and a broad range of adapters, it easily handles all common tube formats from 0.2 mL to 250 mL. Its aerodynamic round bucket design saves up to 48 % energy compared to Rotor A–4–62. Buckets and adapters are autoclavable.
Rotor for high-speed centrifugation
Eppendorf Rotor FA–45–6–30 (6 x 50 mL) with Eppendorf QuickLock® lid can be used at a maximum speed of 20,130 x g (12,100 rpm) in Centrifuge 5810 R and 16,639 x g (11,000 rpm) in the 5804, 5804 R and 5810. It is aerosol-tight for safe centrifugation of hazardous samples and uses Eppendorf QuickLock technology for fast rotor lid locking. With a low rotor weight of 3.2 kg, it improves handling to make everyday work more comfortable. A 45° borehole angle minimizes pellets smear along the tube wall.

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."
