The Eppendorf 5810R refrigerated centrifuge (-9 to +40 degrees C) runs at speeds from 200 to 14,000 rpm; is compatible with 18 interchangeable rotors (sold separately) for spinning commonly used tubes, bottles, and microplates; and holds up to four 750mL tubes. A rotor recognition program automatically limits each rotor to its maximum rated speed to help ensure safe operation. 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 up to 35 centrifugation programs (including speed, time, temperature, and deceleration parameters) for operating efficiency and repeatability of results. This centrifuge is suitable for applications in clinical chemistry, biotechnology, and life science research.
This centrifuge has standby cooling to maintain the temperature when not in use, and operation can be timed from one to 99 minutes or set to continuous. 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.
