Striking Design meets Functionality with Launch of new Minicentrifuge

Oct 08 2022

The redesigned Starlab Minicentrifuge is not just a good looker, it also makes the daily routine of spin downs in the lab much easier. As scientists are usually multi-tasking and holding different objects at the same time, being able to operate the device with one hand was a feature that was commented on during field testing.

Multitasking scientists are set to benefit from a new laboratory product which combines ease of use and unique design – the Starlab Minicentrifuge.

Designed with one-handed operation in mind, the new device follows on from the Mini Fuge Plus and once again, user-friendliness is central to its design.

It is the first product designed with a unique new look to reflect the company’s award-winning branding. In 2020, Starlab decided to inject some colour into the otherwise sterile lab world and its new branding won a Red Dot Award, an international competition for product design and design concepts.  

The redesigned Starlab Minicentrifuge is not just a good looker, it also makes the daily routine of spin downs in the lab much easier. As scientists are usually multi-tasking and holding different objects at the same time, being able to operate the device with one hand was a feature that was commented on during field testing.

The seamless function allows easy one-handed operation. Thanks to its magnetic lid lock, users can close the minicentrifuge softly and spinning starts automatically. At the end of the run, the brake is activated by a glove-compatible touch button and the cover lock is released. Should the power fail for any reason while the minicentrifuge is running, the device has an override function which opens the cover to ensure the samples are not locked inside.

The Minicentrifuge is compatible with a large selection of tubes and is supplied with both an 8-place tube rotor and a PCR strip rotor. Up to eight individual 1.5/2.0 ml microcentrifuge tubes can be processed using the tube rotor. 0.5 ml and 0.2 ml tubes can also be accommodated with the aid of the adapters supplied with the Minicentrifuge. The PCR strip rotor is intended for the centrifugation of up to four 8-tube PCR strips or 32 individual 0.2 ml tubes. Users can easily change rotors at the workstation without any tools
