PRP Combination Centrifuge E8
The E8 Variable centrifuge is a multipurpose centrifuge designed for a variety of laboratory applications, such as blood separations, urine sediments, microhematocrits, and other routine procedures. This model is loaded with features and improvements that make it a versatile and convenient option for labs of all types.
The E8 centrifuge operates quietly and an auto-calibrating speed function that provides precision results. The auto-brake feature stops the rotor in less than 30 seconds, saving time in busy labs. The E8 Variable will separate blood at 3,500 rpm and can be slowed to separate other fluids at lower g-force, such as urine specimens.
The E8 Variable centrifuge is equipped with a 12 volt DC maintenance-free motor, and a clear view port in the lid for using a tachometer. The suction-cupped feet prevent slipping during operation, and a lid safety shut-off switch ensures safe operation.
The E8 Variable centrifuge includes an eight-place rotor, eight 15ml tube sleeves, and eight 13x75mm tube sleeve inserts. Additionally, optional eight-place "CRIT Carrier" inserts are available for capillary tubes.
The E8 Variable centrifuge is a reliable and versatile centrifuge that is loaded with features to make laboratory processing faster, quieter, and more precise. Its wide range of applications and convenient features make it an ideal option for laboratories that require a dependable and efficient centrifuge.

- What is a laboratory centrifuge?
- A laboratory centrifuge is a laboratory instrument used to separate different components of a mixture based on their size, density, or shape. It works by spinning the mixture at high speed, causing the heavier or denser components to move to the bottom of the centrifuge tube, while the lighter components remain near the top.
- What is the difference between a fixed angle and swing out rotor?
The difference between a fixed angle rotor and a swing-out rotor in a laboratory centrifuge is the way that the tubes or vials are held in place during centrifugation.
A fixed angle rotor has a fixed angle of inclination, usually between 15° and 45°, and the tubes or vials are held in place by a locking mechanism. This type of rotor is typically used for applications that require high speeds and short centrifugation times.
A swing-out rotor, on the other hand, has a hinged bucket that swings out from the axis of rotation, allowing for easy access to the tubes or vials. This type of rotor is typically used for applications that require slower speeds and longer centrifugation times, as it allows for more gentle handling of the samples.
- What does a centrifuge consist of?
A typical laboratory centrifuge consists of a rotor, which holds the tubes or vials containing the mixture, and a motor that drives the rotor to spin at high speed. The rotor is typically mounted in a sealed chamber, which is designed to contain the mixture in the event of a tube breaking or leaking.
