Hermle Z216-MK Refrigerated Microcentrifuge

The Hermle Z216-MK Refrigerated Microcentrifuge is compact, quiet, and powerful. Add to this, the versatility of nine available rotor options, and the result is the ideal microcentrifuge for the modern molecular biology laboratory.

  • rotor options with capacity up to 44 x 1.5/2.0ml
  • High speed, 15,000 rpm/21,631 xg
  • Powerful refrigeration, room temp. to 4°C in <10 min
  • Accepts tubes from 0.2ml to 5ml

All common microtubes (0.2ml, 0.5ml, 1.5ml, 2.0ml) can be accepted as well as PCR strips, hematocrit tubes, and even 5.0ml centrifuge tubes. Advanced microprocessor controls allow for setting/displaying of the rotational speed in either rpm or rcf. In addition to retrieving saved programs, the easy to use front panel can adjust accel/decel rates, and change the end of run alarm tone. Despite a remarkably small footprint, the Z216 series offers a uniquely designed 44 x 1.5ml dual row rotor, nearly doubling the capacity when compared to traditional microcentrifuges.

In the Z216-MK model a powerful, compressor driven cooling system maintains temperatures as low as -20°C and is designed to reach 4°C (from room temperature) in less than 10 minutes.
