Centrifuge Installation & Set-up

Installing Centrifuge on a stable base

Some units can weigh as much as 350 lbs when fully loaded with the rotor, buckets, adapters and media. Over time this can cause an unsecured table or unsteady work surface to become weak and in turn become a safety hazard in your lab. To avoid any issues, please make sure your unit is installed on a bench or work surface that can support the weight of your centrifuge and any other equipment you have on the same surface. Typically most lab benches in hospitals and research facilities can support the product just fine.

For centrifugation safety and maximum results, the rotors and buckets may only be loaded symmetrically with all containers distributed evenly on all rotor positions. For authorized combinations, see the section "Rotors and Accessories" and "Loading the Rotor" in the Product Manual supplied with the centrifuge.
