Benchmark's MC-12 is the first and only compact microcentrifuge capable of achieving centrifugal speeds up to the critical threshold of 16,000 xg, often held as the standard for many molecular biology/DNA protocols. Its brushless, maintenance-free drive system makes it powerful, yet compact enough to allow each workstation to be fully equipped with a personal centrifuge.

The MC-12 defines a new class of microcentrifuge: compact, quick, powerful, and affordable. All aspects of microcentrifuge performance were taken into consideration and no compromises were made. In addition to its unsurpassed speed, the MC-12 also delivers shortened acceleration/deceleration times, whisper-quiet operation and its computer-designed airflow pattern minimize sample temperature increases during longer runs at high speeds.

All operating parameters are set using a single, conveniently located control knob and the large, bright LCD provides a clear indication of time and rpm or g-force. A separate momentary spin button permits instant spin downs, without setting or disturbing any preset parameters. The aircraft-grade aluminum rotor accepts 1.5 to 2.0ml tubes
directly, as well as 0.5 and 0.2ml tubes with optional adapters. For applications requiring sub-ambient temperatures, the MC-12 is cold room safe.
