Personal Microcentrifuge


Outstanding productivity at an exceptional value

The Thermo Scientific Espresso 12-place centrifuge achieves speeds up to 14,600 rpm (14,500 xg) and, complete with rotor, accommodates micro tubes from 0.5 to 2.0 ml, or even smaller volumes with adapters. Ideal for applications across pharmaceutical, biotechnology and academic research, the versatile, yet compact Espresso performs standard runs with a minimum of adjustments.

Maximum Productivity

With performance up to 14,500 xg, the Espresso addresses a variety of applications including nucleic acid purification, PCR cleanup, plasmid mini-prep, protein processing and forensics. Insert and remove the rotor and samples with minimal effort for significant time savings and unmatched acceleration and deceleration rates increase productivity.

Enhanced Design

The compact 76.5 square-inch footprint conserves valuable benchtop space and quiet operation does not interrupt research. The Espresso’s plastic, pre-installed rotor is non-corroding and fully autoclavable for cleaning convenience.

Simplified Operation

The Espresso features a large LED display to enhance viewing of operating parameters. Eliminate toggling arrow keys or imprecise analog controls with the one-knob adjustment and quickly change parameters.

Reliable Investment

Affordably priced to fit most departmental budgets, the Espresso offers years of maintenance-free operation. Consider dedicating multiple Espresso units to various stages of testing.
