The new Eppendorf Centrifuge 5420 was designed with your molecular biology routine applications in mind. The spectrum of methods includes DNA/RNA purification, DNA extraction from agarose gels and PCR reaction set-up. It has a particularly small footprint to save space on the lab bench and an easy to clean keypad control panel. You can spin up to 24 tubes from 1.5 to 2.0 mL. Optional adapters extend the volume range to 0.4 and 0.5 mL tubes as well as 0.6 mL BD Microtainer®. A rotor for 32 PCR tubes (0.2 mL) or four PCR strips is available as well. For your safety, the standard rotor provides aerosol-tight containment for the centrifugation of hazardous samples such as viruses, pathogen bacteria or radioactive probes.


  • Standard rotor for up to 24 x 1.5 and 2.0 mL tubes
  • Rotor option for up to 32 x 0.2 mL PCR tubes or 4 x 8-place PCR strips
  • Adapters for 0.2, 0.4 and 0.5 mL tubes as well as 0.6 mL BD Microtainer®
  • Soft-touch one-finger lid closure for ergonomic lid locking
  • Automatic lid opening at the end of the run to prevent sample warming and to allow easy access to samples
  • High quality anodized aluminum rotors and rotor lids
  • One push short-spin key for quick centrifugation - no need to hold key all the while
  • Easy to clean keypad control panel
  • Particularly small footprint to save precious space on the lab bench: 24 × 35 × 22 cm (W × D × H)
