Used Benchtop Ultracentrifuges

Labs and organizations everywhere rely on centrifuges to separate samples for testing and production. Benchtop models offer power in a small footprint, while ultracentrifuge types provide high separation efficiency. 

Your search for centrifuges may include shopping for new models, but such powerful equipment often comes at a high price. Used models can offer the same power at a fraction of the cost. New Life Scientific is a trusted provider of used lab equipment. Explore our available benchtop ultracentrifuges to find the right model for your applications.

Features of Benchtop Ultracentrifuges

Operations turn to benchtop ultracentrifuges for various reasons. Notable features include:

  • Speed: Ultracentrifuges offer high speeds for excellent separation efficiency. Experience rotations per minute (RPM) as high as 150,000.
  • Refrigeration: Control the heat generated by an ultracentrifuge with built-in refrigeration and cooling methods to protect your samples and the machine.
  • Capacity: A benchtop centrifuge's capacity will affect how large of a sample it can separate. Benchtop ultracentrifuges have smaller capacities than floor models but can adapt to sample sizes with different rotors.
  • Rotors: Some benchtop ultracentrifuges are compatible with many different rotor sizes. This adaptability is excellent for making your benchtop ultracentrifuge work for many applications. 
  • Additional technology: Some manufacturers and machine types will feature additional technology like advanced screens for user-friendly operations.

What to Consider When Buying a Used Benchtop Ultracentrifuge

When you buy a used benchtop ultracentrifuge, you want the best possible model for your money. Some of the factors to consider include: 

  • Size: While all benchtop ultracentrifuges are small enough to sit on a bench, some are larger than others. If your space is low on bench room, check the dimensions to confirm a model's size is right for your lab. Micro ultracentrifuges can offer the same high power in a condensed footprint.
  • Age: Generally, centrifuges younger than 10 years old have minimal functional issues, but models upwards of 10 or 20 years may show more signs of wear. Be aware of the quality you may be purchasing, but take comfort that centrifuges can function well even with a few decades of use.
  • Application: Benchtop ultracentrifuges are not one-size-fits-all. You'll want to make sure your model meets all the right capabilities for your applications, like speed, rotor compatibility and maximum force.
  • Refrigeration: Cooling is essential for ultracentrifuges because they generate a lot of heat. Invest in a used ultracentrifuge that has a reliable refrigeration system to ensure it stays protected.
  • Warranty: Buying used comes with the risks of your model not working up to standards. Warranties provide peace of mind should your purchase fail after a few uses. 
  • Component health: Bends, dings and dents in rotor chambers, rotors and spindles can affect performance. A benchtop ultracentrifuge may even display an error message to indicate system failures. Keep your eye out for these factors.
  • Rotor Availability: With some floor ultracentrifuges being over 20 years old, you should ensure that you can source the rotor that would meet your application needs. If you need help finding that rotor, contact us.

The Benefits of a Used Benchtop Ultracentrifuge

Buying used benchtop centrifuges can be beneficial in various ways. Advantages include:

  • Performance: While used models may sustain some wear, centrifuges are well-built machines designed for longevity. This fact means you can get a highly functional model at a used price.
  • Affordability: Many operations need to prioritize budgeting to make the most of their funding. Used ultracentrifuges offer the quality you need at a price that works with your budget. Used models can be anywhere from 50% to 90% off retail price.
  • Eco-friendliness: When used equipment isn't resold, it goes to a landfill. Make use of functional ultracentrifuges while showing you care about the planet.
  • Familiarity: If you're used to working with a particular centrifuge model in your lab, you may be looking for an exact replacement. Shopping for used equipment can help you find your familiar model and sidestep any adjustment time that comes with a new machine.
