A common challenge product designers face is balancing sophistication and usability. The CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge provides the perfect balance by masking the complex features of its modern PCR plate spinner architecture under a user-friendly control panel. The front-facing control panel features a cleanly laid out digital display with clearly labeled controls that are easy to understand. The front of the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge also features LED lights designed to complement the capacitive touch controls and provide visual cues to operators as they interact with the PCR plate spinner. Adjusting run parameters on the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is as easy as selecting the desired speed and time and letting it run. Centrifuging 96 well plates cannot be any simpler than using the CAPPRondo PCR plate spinner.
Nestled behind the control panel of the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is the advanced microprocessor driving all the delicate centrifugation operations. Crafted to meet the low-energy, high-performance expectations of modern technology, this powerful microprocessor gives the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge an advantage over similar devices from other manufacturers. It features active cycle monitoring that helps each run of the 96 well plate centrifuge to stay true to user-defined spin cycles. The microprocessor on the CAPPRondo PCR plate spinner also interfaces with the powerful brushless motor to provide unparalleled efficiency and exceptional performance.
With the new high-performance motor of the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge replacing motor brushes is a thing of the past. The new brushless motor is maintenance-free, making the PCR plate spinner run for longer without the risk of brushes wearing out. The CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge’s high-performance motor can spin at a top speed of 2500 RPM while applying a maximum relative centrifugal force of approximately 462 g. This combination of raw motor power and superior efficiency also reduces the noise threshold of the rotor, allowing the PCR plate spinner to run at a whisper – something that can be best appreciated when you try out the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge in-person.
While PCR plate spinners carry a risk of injury due to the high-speed spinning rotor, the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is equipped with enhanced safety features. These safety features are designed to protect users* and the PCR plate spinner from damage due to human error. Starting with its automatic imbalance detection, the CAPPRondo PCR plate spinner will cut off a run when it detects an unbalanced load. Unbalanced loads create potentially risky vibrations that could result in injury to the user or the PCR plate spinner. Additionally, a lid-lock safety device will prevent users from accidentally opening the lid while the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is in operation. The responsive touch buttons on the front of the PCR plate spinner minimize the risk of repetitive strain injury, while the low motor noise lowers the risk of hearing loss.
With a feature set commonly found in larger centrifuges, it is easy to assume that the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is a behemoth of a device. That couldn’t be any further from the truth as this powerful PCR plate spinner comes in a space-efficient size designed to maximize the already limited workbench real estate of most life science laboratories. The CAPPRondo PCR plate spinner’s 330 x 265 mm footprint provides the perfect balance between space savings and motor performance. At a height of 161 mm, the 96 well plate centrifuge can be placed below cabinets with enough space for sample loading and offloading. Additionally, the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is very light at only 4 kg, making it convenient to set up at mobile workstations.
With the right tool (T-Allen Key) and the guidance of the user manual, users can easily remove the rotor of the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge. Refer to the user manual for specific steps.
Yes, the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge can be used to spin down 384 well plates. The PCR plate spinner is compatible with fully-skirted, unskirted, and semi-skirted 384 well PCR plates.
The CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge features an intuitive rotor with easy plate placement. We recommend only spinning PCR plates that have been properly sealed with CAPP Expell PCR seals to prevent leakage. Place each plate onto the rotor with the top facing the center and the bottom facing the inner wall of the PCR plate spinner. If you need visual guidance you can view the helpful diagrams in the user manual.
No, you should always ensure that the 96 well plate centrifuge is balanced by spinning two plates with similar volumes. The automatic imbalance detection feature of the CAPPRondo PCR plate spinner will prevent unbalanced loads from running to protect the plate centrifuge and prevent operator harm.
The standard CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge offers one standard rotor. This versatile rotor is designed to hold standard-size plates 96-well PCR plates as well as 384-well PCR plates.
The brushless motor of the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is designed to spin up to a maximum speed of 2500 RPM. The baseline speed of the myLab® PCR plate spinner is 500 RPM, allowing users a wide range of operational speeds for protocol-specific adjustments.
No, we do not recommend cleaning the PCR plate spinner with rubbing alcohol as it may damage the composite body of the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge. We recommend wiping down the PCR plate spinner with mild detergent and a clean, lint-free cloth to remove dust or microbial contaminants.
The CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is designed to offer exceptional performance with a broad range of PCR plates from reputable manufacturers. The plate holders on the CAPPRondo PCR plate spinner’s rotor are manufactured around the iconic design of CAPP Expell PCR plates. These plates are universally compatible with a broad range of PCR plate spinners and those benefits carry over to the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge. This means that labs with huge PCR plate inventories sourced from other manufacturers can use them with the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge until they are ready to upgrade to the high-quality CAPP Expell laboratory consumables.
Although the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is a PCR plate spinner first and foremost, it is not limited to spinning PCR plates of this configuration. This exceptional little PCR plate spinner can also be used to spin down 384 well PCR plates as well. With its versatility, the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is adaptable to the various modes of multi-sample PCR. In addition, the CAPPRondo PCR plate spinner can spin down unskirted, semi-skirted, and fully skirted PCR plates. This allows users to have one PCR plate spinner that accommodates their unique workflow and preferred PCR consumables.
The CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge bears the marks of excellence inherited from CAPP’s decades of innovation and exacting commitment to impeccable quality. From the choice of premium raw materials to the stellar product engineering by CAPP’s highly qualified team members, the CAPPRondo 96 well plate centrifuge is designed to perform consistently from the first day, and throughout its entire life cycle.
