FastGene Plate Centrifuge

Catalogue number: NG040

Centrifuge for two 96 well plates in SBS standart format inclusive adapter 2 x 12 8- well strips (0.2 ml) or 2 x 96 well plates (0.2 ml). 2200 rpm (480 x g). With timer function.

High-throughput assays using 96-well plate, such as PCR, qPCR or ELISA, work with minimal volumes of the reaction components. It is therefore pivotal that all liquids of the reaction are present in the bottom area of the wells.

Droplets or condensation at the side of the wells could cause the reaction to fail, due to inadequate volumes or to reaction components not being present in the reaction mixture. Plate-centrifugation prior experimenting should therefore be part of every GLP-protocol.

96well plates

The FastGene® Plate Centrifuge is the most convenient, silent and easy to use centrifuge to spin down liquids in 96 well-plates. With its compact size and light weight it fits in every laboratory. The simplicity of the system guarantees quick learning phase. Save a great amount of time, with the quickspin function.

Convenient and versatile

The FastGene® Plate Centrifuge is very versatile: It comes with 2 plate adapters, making it compatible with all types of 96 well plates such as full-skirted, half-skirted or even non-skirted plates. These adapters can also be used for individual reaction tubes and for 8-well strips, making it the perfect centrifuge for spinning down liquids in life science laboratories.

Easy and safe to use

The timer function gives you the freedom to perform multiple tasks while the centrifuge is running. By setting the time (up to 10 minutes) on the illuminated display, you can get more reproducible results, compared to a normal plate centrifuges with equipped with an open/close function only. A signal is given by the centrifuge when the centrifugation is performed and the centrifuge is safe to open. Opening the centrifuge, while it is still in movement causes an alarm to sound, preventing injuries.

Centrifugation was never more silent.

Reduce considerably the noise level in your lab: With an extra silent rotation motor, the FastGene® Plate Centrifuge is the perfect centrifuge for areas of concentrated work. No more disturbing centrifugation noises.

Inside the plate centrifuge

Easy to clean

The rotors of the centrifuge are easily removable, enabling complete cleaning of the internal area of the centrifuge.

Even 384 well plates (full-skirted) are no problem for the plate centrifuge:

  • Before centrifugation droplets are visible at the side wall

  • after centrifugation all the liquid is concentrated at the bottom of the plate

What are these adapters for?

There are two adapters shipped with NG040. One is for non-skirted plates, tubes and strips. The other one for skirted-plates.


Does the pellet sit on the bottom of the tube, or on the “edge” or “side” of the bottom? If yes, is this because it holds the plate at a certain angle? If yes, then the “swing-bucket style plate has a stop so that it does not go completely perpendicular?

The pellet is on the bottom of the tube. When the centrifuge stops, there will be an angle of about 70°, and when it is centrifugal, it will be perpendicular. The rotor is rotary type not swing type.


Can I used the Bio-Rad CFX 384 plates and general full skirted plates?

Both plates will fit in the centrifuge.


Can I centrifuge 384 well plates?

You can spin down full skirted 384 well plates. The result is depending on the stability of the plates. We have seen 384 well plates which deform at high speed after some time. I have tried to spin down our 384 well plate (fully loaded) [FG-300150] and it worked perfectly.

Please keep in mind, it is possibly safer to centrifuge a plate if this is not loaded only in the center.
