KESTREL

MICRO CENTRIFUGES

KESTREL

The Kestrel is a small compact non-refrigerated benchtop centrifuge capable of spinning 6 blood tubes at over 3000g.  Reliable, compact and easy to use, the Kestrel centrifuge is the perfect addition to any medical environment where a small number of blood tubes need to be processed quickly and efficiently.

SAFETY

An electronic interlock prevents operation of the lid release button while the rotor is in motion. An indicator light signals when the rotor has come to rest and the lid may be opened safely. An override key is provided for emergency uses.

EASE OF USE

Maintenance free, brushless drive. spare parts available for a long time with easy access for maintenance and repair. A range of tubes can be used in the Kestrel centrifuge, from the standard 15ml Vacutainer® blood tube to the 10ml Sarstedt Monovette®.

PRACTICALITY

The Kestrel centrifuge weighs only 4.5 kg meaning you can easily carry it from one laboratory to the next, or use it for off-site research purposes.  The small footprint makes it an ideal choice in laboratories where space is a premium.

VERSATILITY

The rotor is designed in such a way to ensure noise and vibration levels are minimised whilst the centrifuge is in operation, even at maximum speed. With speed upto 6000 rpm it only creates 56db of noise.

RELIABILITY

More than 80 years of experience into the design and manufacture of our centrifuges. Robust and easy to last. High level final quality control before dispatch from our factory.
