November 2018—Heathrow Scientific introduced its MagFuge high-speed centrifuge and magnetic stirrer in one unit.
The MagFuge features a back-lit digital display and one button programming. Three rotors are included, two for centrifugation (a 12 place for 1.5/2.0 mL tubes and a six place for 5 mL tubes, with adapters for additional tube sizes) and one for stirring that includes two rare earth magnets for high-performance mixing.
The unit offers adjustable time (30 seconds to 60 minutes) and speed (500–12,500 rpm) that can be set in rpm or relative centrifugal force. Safety features help en-sure it will not operate when the lid is open, a rotor is jammed, or the unit is out of balance. It is appropriate for PCR, microfilter cell separation, and HPLC protocols.
