The Model 642VES, is a variable-speed centrifuge designed for the doctor’s office or small lab. The scrollable time setting and digital readout make it incredibly easy to use. Its compact design minimizes its footprint, leaving more room on your counter. The unique horizontal rotor design allows for the test tubes to be inserted into the centrifuge at a convenient 45 degree angle. They are then gently rotated to a full horizontal position as the motor accelerates.
