Centrifuge/Vortex CVP-2

Centrifuge/vortex for PCR plates

CVP-2 is a fully automatic device for reproducing sms–algorithm for 2 PCR plates at the same time, thus saving time considerably. A must-have instrument for PCR and DNA analyses laboratory.

Centrifuge and vortex for 96-/384-Well

The Spin–Mix–Spin technology is intended to spin-down micro volumes of reagents on the well's bottom (first centrifugation spin), following mixing (mix) and spin-down the reagents again from the walls and cap of the well (second spin). We named this repetitive algorithm of operation that is aimed at reducing the mistakes during sample preparation for PCR analysis a “sms–algorithm”. This algorithm is registered by Biosan.

Comparison of CVP-2

Does liquid goes on top of the well if PCR plate is turned upside down?
