Eppendorf launched their very first centrifuge 56 years ago in 1964 which, as the first ever laboratory microcentrifuge on the market, revolutionised biomedical research the world over and set a precedent for accessible quality laboratory equipment. Today, Eppendorf manufacture a comprehensive range of benchtop centrifuges world-renowned for their exceptional quality and ergonomic operation which are packed full of features and innovation making them a solid choice when it comes to purchasing a new centrifuge for your lab.
Broadly, their range is split in to two groups – the microcentrifuge (including the mini centrifuge) and the multipurpose centrifuge. The mirocentrifuges are small bench top centrifuges accommodating typically 1.5/2ml or 5ml tubes. The multipurpose centrifuges can accommodate larger tubes with the greatest capacity model capable of holding up to 4 x 1,000ml tubes. Eppendorf centrifuges have features such as soft close lids and quick lock rotors and are available in a number of formats – such as with and without refrigeration and with a foil keypad or knob settings control. With this choice, you are sure to find the right centrifuge.

Eppendorf supply two versions of the centrifuges in their range – a general lab product (GLP) or an IVD – compliant version. If you are working in a clinical research setting or require a heightened level of regulatory approval then you will want to look at the IVD version. Otherwise, the GLP model will be sufficient.
