Protect your samples and the planet with the sustainable centrifuge 5427 R from Eppendorf

On 7th July, Eppendorf introduced the Centrifuge 5427 R — the first Eppendorf microcentrifuge with hydrocarbon cooling to contribute to an even more sustainable laboratory environment. With this offering, users can now perform various molecular and cell biology applications while using a refrigerated device that contains a natural cooling agent with a global warming potential (GWP) of almost zero. To protect your samples — and the planet.

Natural cooling agents, like R290 (propane), have a similarly low GWP as CO2 (<3), while conventional refrigerants such as R134a have a GWP of 1430 and thus have a disproportionately greater impact on global warming when released into the environment.

The ACT label certification of Centrifuge 5427 R makes it even easier for customers to choose a more sustainable product, since this label gives a clear, third-party verified information about its environmental impact e.g., manufacturing, energy and water usage as well as packaging and product end-of-life.

The new Centrifuge 5427 R offers more than reliable propane cooling. Due to its compact footprint and the dual-row rotor FA-45-48-11 for up to 48 x 1.5/2 mL tubes, capable of speeds up to 25,001 x g, it is the optimal solution for laboratories with a high sample throughput. It is also a good choice for areas where many users share instruments, due to its large rotor selection. The nine rotor options, consisting of fixed-angle and swing-bucket rotors, cover a wide range of applications in the field of molecular and cell biology.
