Eppendorf Centrifuges and Sustainability

In 2023, the 5910Ri and 5427R Eppendorf centrifuges became the first centrifuges worldwide to receive the ACT label. The ACT label resembles a nutrition label, showing how products rate in various sustainability categories. The 5427R centrifuge now uses a hydrocarbon cooling liquid, propane, in place of the hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to reduce HFCs environmental impact. This blog covers the cha...

What is the difference between RCF and RPM in centrifuges?

When selecting an appropriate centrifuge, one of the key points to consider is the maximum speed and if this meets your protocol. Centrifuges have two measures of speed, known as RCF and RPM, and whilst these may be used interchangeably they are in fact very different measurements. RPM - Rotation per minute Simply, this is how many times per minute the rotor will spin. This measure cannot...
