  • Intuitive controls and large, bright LCD display aid operation and programming

Mega Star centrifuges are available as ventilated or refrigerated versions. The refrigerated version, with pre-cooling function, is suitable for temperature-sensitive sample processing with control between −10 and +40 °C.
