Using the VetSpin Micro Centrifuge

‘Simply load and balance your blood tubes correctly, close the lid, set your timer and switch on!’
Machine starts automatically at 10,000rpm fixed speed. Set your countdown timer accordingly & when ready switch off to stop and press lid lock to open lid once rotor has stopped spinning.

Changing the Rotors

Rotors are changed by squeezing the rotor clips whilst simultaneously lifting off the rotor and then fitting the other rotor over the clip and on to the motor shaft – no tools required.
A complete User Manual is provided and we provide full technical support.

Please see the below video but please note that our new version now has 8 x Tube Holders

Balancing Your Centrifuge

How and Why to Balance Your Centrifuge

A reliable benchtop centrifuge is essential to many veterinary tests, diagnoses and sample handling procedures. Balancing your laboratory centrifuge before each and every operation is the simplest and most effective action you can take to prolong its life, performance, reliability and safety.

Why Balancing Your Laboratory Centrifuge Matters

However, these same g-forces also magnify any slight differences in the uneven distribution of weight around the rotor. Even a slight weight imbalance between samples will cause the centrifuge to vibrate, shake uncontrollably and, in extreme circumstances, even explode.

Running a high-speed centrifuge with an unevenly loaded rotor is the most common cause of centrifuges breaking down. Out of balance loading causes the moving parts to shake uncontrollably. At best, this means the motor and bearings wear out more quickly. At worst, it risks sudden and explosive failure of the motor or rotor, and serious injury to laboratory personnel.
