  • Quickly spins down droplets in PCR plates
  • Unique swing-out rotor design prevents spillage (Patent Pending)
  • Half the size of traditional centrifuges
  • Accepts all popular types of PCR plates


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 (9x10 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 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.
