Micro Centaur Plus

Supporting you Then, Supporting you Now

A space saving Microcentrifuge 

The Micro Centaur Plus is an improved version of the original Micro Centaur, adding new features and accessories. Its space-saving design and programmable features makes it an ideal choice for your laboratory. This powerful microcentrifuge is capable of speeds up to 14,500 rpm (14,573 g) and can use a range of rotors up to 2.2 ml capacity. A Haematocrit and PCR rotor is also available. 

Convenient Top–Mounted Rotor 

So much easier to load, empty or clean than rotors in wells. The rotor removes quickly for autoclaving. In case of an accident, spilled liquids or broken tubes remain in the rotor, not in the centrifuge. 

Timer or ‘Pulse’ Operation 

For short bursts of centrifugation or manual operation, simply press and hold the ‘Pulse’ button. For automatically controlled spins of longer duration, the timer can be set for intervals of up to 99 minutes. 

Incredibly Light and Small 

The Micro Centaur Plus microcentrifuge weighs only 5 kg meaning you can easily carry it from one laboratory to the next, or use it for off-site research purposes. Furthermore, its small footprint (270 x 220 x 180mm when closed) makes it an ideal choice in laboratories where space is a premium. 

24 Tube Capacity 

Choose which rotor best suits your centrifugation needs: 24 x 2.2ml, 18 x 0.5ml rotor, PCR strip or haematocrit rotor. Alternatively, you can combine the 24 x 2.2ml rotor with a tube support for added flexibility. 

Smooth, Quiet Operation 

The aerodynamically designed rotor spins smoothly and quietly, virtually without vibration, even at maximum speed. 

Safety Lid Lock and Out-of-Balance Detection 

An electronic interlock prevents operation of the lid release button while the rotor is in motion. An indicator light signals when the rotor has come to rest and the lid may be opened safely. For emergency situations such as power failures, an override key is provided. 

The Micro Centaur Plus microcentrifuge is also equipped with an automatic out-of-balance detection system for improved safety.
