The Benchmark Scientific C2000 PlateFuge is the first "mini" sized centrifuge with a swing out rotor for microplates. Centrifuging plates before PCR ensures all reactants are in the bottom of the wells for proper concentrations and improved yields. In spite of its remarkably small footprint (9x10 inches), the PlateFuge includes a uniquely designed, swing out rotor capable of securing 2 microplates. The easily accessible rotor chamber of the C2000 includes two plate carriers that rest at a 75 degree angle. This allows plates to be inserted confidently without sealing tapes or caps. Upon closing the lid of the centrifuge, the rotor accelerates and the centrifugal force "swings" the plates into a horizontal position. Any droplets on the walls of the plate quickly concentrate into the well bottoms. With a g-force of over 400 xg, most samples can be spun down in less than 20 seconds. To end a run, simply open the lid and the automatic, electric brake brings the rotor to a quick, smooth stop in about 7 seconds. Plates can then be easily removed from the rotor.
