Centrifuge/Vortex for PCR plates

CVP-2 is a fully automatic device for reproducing sms–algorithm for 2 PCR plates at the same time, thus saving time considerably. A must-have instrument for PCR and DNA analyses laboratory.

The Spin–Mix–Spin technology is intended to spin-down micro volumes of reagents on the well’s bottom (first centrifugation spin), following mixing (mix) and spin-down the reagents again from the walls and cap of the well (second spin). We named this repetitive algorithm of operation that is aimed at reducing the mistakes during sample preparation for PCR analysis a “sms–algorithm”. This algorithm is registered by Biosan.


CVP-2 is 4 devices combined in 1:

  • Centrifuge — Maximum RCF: 245 × g (1500 rpm)
  • Vortex (300–1200 rpm; Vortexing regulation timer 0–60 sec)
  • Centrifuge/Vortex
  • SMS–cycler for realization of the “sms–algorithm”
