The Eppendorf 5702 centrifuge runs at speeds from 100 to 4,400 rpm, is compatible with six interchangeable rotors (sold separately) for spinning commonly used tubes, and holds up to four 100mL tubes. It provides digital control of speed in rpm or relative centrifugal force (RCF), and has LCD readouts to show all settings. The centrifuge automatically shuts off if rotor imbalance is detected for reduced wear, noise, and vibration, and an electronic lid lock prevents the unit from being opened during operation for increased safety. It can store two centrifugation programs (including speed, time, and deceleration parameters) for operating efficiency and repeatability of results. This low-speed centrifuge is used in research and clinical laboratories for blood, urine, and cell separations.
The operation of this centrifuge can be timed from 0.5 to 99 minutes, or set to continuous. The unit is non-refrigerated and does not have temperature control features. This model is available with a rotor.

H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
A centrifuge is used to spin fluids of different densities to separate various parts, commonly blood and DNA samples. Centrifuges are composed of the main body or housing and a spinning rotor. Tubes of cellular material suspended in liquid are inserted into the rotor and spun at various speeds to separate components. Centrifuges are used in medical, industrial, and research laboratories, as well as academic and clinical settings.
Eppendorf manufactures instruments for cell manipulation and automated devices for liquid handling, for use in life science research laboratories. The company, found in 1945, is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany.
