productThe new PCR strip rotor is equipped with an aerosol-tight, easy-twist-on biocontainment lid for ease of use and safe centrifugation. It accommodates 4 X 8 standard PCR strips or up to 32 X 0.2 mL individual PCR tubes. The easy-to-twist lid can also be used with standard rotors for the Pico and Fresco.

The Sorvall Pico is an ultracompact microcentrifuge capable of spinning 24 1.5 or 2 mL tubes at speeds of up to 13,000 rpm. With a footprint measuring 9 X 13 in, the Pico features a load-relief lid and an ergonomically designed lid grip for easy access to the rotor. A whisper-quiet brushless induction motor accelerates samples to maximum speed in a few seconds.

The Pico’s refrigerated counterpart is the compact and quiet Sorvall Fresco, which also accommodates 1.5 or 2 mL tubes in a 24-place rotor. Stand-still cooling protects samples from freezing, while the CFC-free refrigeration system maintains constant temperatures of 0°C to 4°C, even during extended centrifugation.
