The LW Scientific MX5 Centrifuge spins test tubes, up to 17.5 x 128mm, at speeds up to 5,000 rpm, with microprocessor speed control. G-forces up to 4,220g’s will produce platelet-poor plasma in minutes. The digital menu is simple-to-use and the digital interface ensures accurate processing. The zero-rpm interlocking lid will stay locked until the rotor has come to a stop, to ensure safety. The all-metal rotors and tube shields are built for strength and durability, and the wide-mouth metal bowl allows for easy cleanup. The whisper-quiet heavy-duty brushless DC motor can handle high volume use and high-speed full loads for years to come.

Horizontal separation offers many advantages over traditional fixed-angle separations, including tighter straight-line gel separations to reduce re-spins and re-mixes.
