A truly great product is ultimately defined by its functional design.
The MagFuge® by Heathrow Scientific is the industry’s first high-speed centrifuge and magnetic stirrer, combined into one unit. This design innovation enables a substantial cost savings for labs by not having to purchase two pieces of equipment, a stirrer and a centrifuge, because the MagFuge® does it all.
- Made from a durable chemically resistant ABS and polycarbonate making it easy to clean, maintenance free and helps lower the cost of ownership
- The modern low-profile design is compact and has a small footprint for labs with limited bench space and limited height that ultimately helps reduced clutter in the lab
- An easy to use back-lit digital control panel for time, speed and operations ensures effective outcomes and streamlines the work flow process by allowing for quick set up
- US Design Patent No. D814,045 and Utility Patent Pending
- Community Design No. 003515337-0001-0002 European Patent App. 3 246 088
High-Speed Mini Centrifuge
The high-speed Centrifuge (12,500 RPM) is designed to give you maximum speed and flexibility while being comfortable and easy to use.
- Ideal for most protocols requiring fast spins (12,500rpm / 9,800 x g), and appropriate for PCR, microfilter cell separation, and HPLC protocols
- Adjustable time (30 seconds to 60 minutes) and speed (500 to 12,500 RPM)
- Variable speed can be set in RPM or RCF and has rapid acceleration and fast controlled breaking
- Two rotors included, 12 place for 1.5/2.0 mL tubes and 6 place for 5 mL tubes with adapters for additional tube sizes
- Manual lid override allows users to open lid in case of a power failure and prevents loss of samples
- Safety features help ensure it will not operate when the lid is open, a rotor is jammed, or the unit is out of balance
The high-performance Magnetic Stirrer (3L Plus) is designed to provide a powerful magnetic coupling that ensures consistent accurate alignment of the stir bar that significantly reduce the chance of spin-outs.
- Ideal for work with sensitive samples such as cell lines and protocols requiring more aggressive mixing to quickly achieve full dilution of samples in solution
- Multiple stirring modes, clockwise, c. clockwise and oscillate enable protocols to be controlled precisely for reproducible results
- Adjustable time (30 seconds to 60 minutes or continuous) and speed (50 to 2,500 RPM)
- After hours of continuous use, the unit remains cool ensuring sample integrity
- Sensor technology prevents the stirrer rotor from being used above 2,500 RPM helping to protect users and prevent unit damage
- Two silicone mats are included to help prevent spills and to help keep vessels stable
- High-quality rare-earth magnets are used in the stirrer rotor to ensure the strongest magnetic coupling
- Two rare-earth stir bars (40 x 12 mm) included have PTFE coating for chemical resistance
Precision, literally at the touch of one button!
The MagFuge® offers an easy to program digital display.
Multiple functions and options are available to achieve the best possible centrifugation and stirring results for a wide range of protocols.
Conveniently rotate the knob to choose the function desired (centrifuge or stirrer) and push to lock in the selection
After selecting a function, rotate through the performance options and select the program to meet your requirements.
