Previously QBC Diagnostics and the Drucker Company

The Model 842VES 6-tube horizontal centrifuge provides high performance, versatility, and quick results to meet the needs of the most demanding lean laboratories. High G-force capabilities provide 3-minute separation in a gel tube when suited with the optional Performance Plus rotor for 13mm x 75mm tubes, and 5 minutes with the standard rotor. The 842VES offers the fastest turn-around-time possible with Platelet Poor Plasma for your chemistry samples and coags in a fraction of the time of a typical centrifuge!

Whether you are centrifuging Plate-Rich Plasma or Platelet-Poor Plasma, the Model 842VES can accurately process samples and greatly reduce overall operational time. Variable acceleration and deceleration along with the ability to save settings in up to 10 memory locations results in an extremely flexible centrifuge.  

  • Rapid Separations for Plate-Rich Plasma and Platelet-Poor-Plasma
  • Full Horizontal Separation for Six (6) Tubes up to 10ml
  • Precise Variable Controls
  • ETL Compliant to ANSI/UL Standards; CE Marked


Model 842VES: Features

  • Electronic timer with display: Selectable 1 to 99 minutes with hold feature
  • Electronic variable speed control with display: Easily set the running speed by either RPM or RCF
  • Rotor: 6 place horizontal, 6 plave performance plus
  • Brushless DC Motor: Years of operation with no routine maintenance
  • Variable acceleration and deceleration: For maximum programming flexibility
