Up to 2,000 xg

The Model 642VFD performance provides the 500 xg – 2,000 xg recommended by Kova Urine Tubes®, BD Vacutainers®, Greiner Vacuettes®, Sarstedt S-Monovettes®, and more. The programmable single-speed operation is simple yet flexible enough for any application.

Using patented rotor technology, the 642VFD reduces blood separation processing times by 33% or more while minimizing use of valuable counter space. The performance of the 642VFD maximizes sample integrity by keeping your patient samples cool during centrifugation, providing high quality gel separation layers, and minimizing the presence of cells or fibrin strands in the serum or plasma. The built-in universal power supply and UL/CE safety approvals allow for global use.
