The Eppendorf 5417C helped to define what people think of when they envision a benchtop centrifuge. The 5417C from Eppendorf is a reliable and durable benchtop centrifuge. The Eppendorf 5417C can centrifuge micro test tubes at 20,800 rcf (14,000 rpm). You can also use a special 24 position rotor in the Eppendorf 5417C to reach 25,000 rcf. There is also an additional rotor for the Eppendorf 5417c which allows the centrifuging of six 8-tube PCR strips. It has a small footprint for its power and capacity (15” x 13” x 9”) and runs quietly.
