Benchtop centrifuges are compact laboratory devices designed to rapidly spin samples and separate particles based on their density. These instruments are tailored to save space in research, industrial, and clinical laboratories, fitting conveniently onto workbenches and smaller stations. They serve as versatile tools with applications spanning various research fields, including cell culture, clinical diagnostics, genomics, and DNA/RNA research. These centrifuges come equipped with different rotor and speed combinations, allowing researchers to adapt them to specific research needs. They also offer ventilation and temperature control options, essential for handling temperature-sensitive samples. Benchtop centrifuges are available with two primary rotor types: fixed-angle and swinging bucket, each affecting where particles collect in the sample tubes. What sets them apart is their Relative Centrifugal Force (RCF), a critical measure of their separation power. While versatile multipurpose centrifuges offer RCF up to around 24,000 × g, ultra centrifuges can reach an impressive 1,000,000 × g, particularly useful in nanotechnology. Additionally, factors such as noise levels, bowl access, and rotor material influence the selection of the most suitable benchtop centrifuge for specific laboratory applications.
