    Benchmark’s 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 (9×10 in.), the PlateFuge™ includes a
    uniquely designed, swing out rotor (patent pending) capable of securing
    2 microplates. The easily accessible rotor chamber includes two plate carriers
    that rest at a 75° 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 600 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 just 4 seconds. Plates can then be easily removed
    from the rotor.
