Unique cross-over Centrifuges 5430 and 5430 R bring multipurpose versatility to every lab bench! These new centrifuges spin rotors for Eppendorf tubes and PCR strips as you would expect from any microcentrifuge. But that’s not all. In a compact size—just over a foot of bench space—Models 5430 and 5430 R also accommodate rotors for microplates, as well as 15 mL and 50 mL conical tubes. Until now, this has only been possible with large multipurpose centrifuges.
- 8 different rotor options available, accommodating everything from 0.2 mL tubes to 50 mL conical tubes and microplates
- High centrifugation speed up to 30,130 x g (17,500 rpm)
- Compact footprint to fit on all lab benches
- Eppendorf QuickLock lids come standard with all aerosol-tight rotors (except high-speed rotor 24 x 1.5/2 mL) for ergonomic rotor lid locking
- Centrifuge lid with a soft-touch closure for ergonomic operation
- Automatic rotor recognition and imbalance detection for maximum safety
- Menu-driven operation with large backlit LCD display for ultra easy operation
Refrigerated Model 5430 R:
- FastTemppro® allows programming of pre-cooling via date and time to make sure the centrifuge is ready for use when you come to the lab in the morning
- ECO shut-off can be adjusted to engage after 8, 4, 2, or 1 hour of nonuse to reduce energy consumption and extend compressor life (can be deactivated in menu). Saves you up to 88% energy overnight.
- Built-in condensation drain to eliminate water accumulation and prevent corrosion
- Additional Model 5430 and 5430 R features:
- Saves up to 50 programs with program names
- 5 program keys for easy access to routine programs
- Available as a rotary knob version for fast parameter selection, or keypad version for easy cleaning
- 2-year warranty.

Can the Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R be opened in case of a power failure?Yes, in the event of a power failure, the unit can be opened by means of the rotor key. Before the centrifuge is opened, always remove the mains plug from the plug socket and wait for the rotor to come to a standstill. For the emergency release of the centrifuge lid, the small plastic caps on the left-hand and right-hand side of the Centrifuge 5430 have to be removed. Then insert the rotor key into the nut underneath the cap and open the lid latches by turning in anticlockwise direction.
How can the Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R be cleaned?The Centrifuge 5430/5430 R can be cleaned with neutral detergents. For disinfection, we recommend alcohol or alcoholic disinfectants. Make sure that the relevant legal requirements and directives are observed when choosing the disinfection method.
Sometimes my Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R displays "EP". What does that mean?"EP" is displayed when the automatic standby function is active. It is not an error code. If the centrifuge remains unused for more than 20 min., the standby function is activated, indicated by "EP" on the display. By using the standby key, the centrifuge is re-activated and ready to use. The letters "EP" were chosen because a lot of Eppendorf products already have this prefix in their name.
Does the Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R recognize an inserted rotor automatically?The Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R has got an automatic rotor recognition, so that a newly inserted rotor is recognized automatically as soon as a run is started. The maximum speed will be automatically limited for each rotor. This prevents overspeeding of the rotor.
Which material is the standard fixed-angle rotor for micro test tubes made of?The aerosol-tight standard fixed-angle rotor is made of massive, anodized aluminum. This material is durable and has got a very good chemical resistance due to the special coating. The aerosol-tight rotor lid is made of the same material.
What is the benefit of the so-called coated rotors?The coated rotors are available for the Centrifuges 5424 and 5430/5430 R. The special coating provides an enhanced chemical resistance against phenol, acetonitrile, DMSO, acetone, trichloroacetic acid, acetic acid and sodium hypochlorite. It is a PTFE coating which is applied on top of the actual anodic coating. Autoclaving (121°C, 20 min.) improves the chemical resistance of the coated rotor due to the material properties of the coating.
What is the benefit of a so-called kit rotor?When working with nucleic acid purification kits with spin columns by certain manufacturers, sometimes tube lids cannot be closed any more. This means you have to centrifuge with open tube lids. These tube lids might rip off during the stress of centrifugation and might damage the centrifuge. In order to prevent this, the kit rotor with the raised rotor rim was designed. Open tube lids, supported against the rim, will not rip off during centrifugation. Another feature of this rotor is the enlarged distance between the rotor bores. The enlarged distance between the bores offers a very convenient handling when loading / unloading the rotor. Especially when working with long spin columns (e. g. from Princeton Separations) you will need a larger distance between the bores to load the rotor fully and make use of the complete rotor capacity.
What tubes can be centrifuged with the Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R?Due to the different rotors and adapters, a wide variety of tubes and plates can be centrifuged with the Centrifuge 5430/ 5430 R: • Micro test tubes (0.5 - 2.0 mL) • PCR strips and 0.2 mL PCR tubes • Spin columns • Cryo tubes • Conical tubes (15 mL and 50 mL) • Blood collection tubes • Oak Ridge Tubes (10 mL, 30 mL and 50 mL) • PCR plates (96 and 384 well) • Micro test plates • Deepwell plates (up to 29 mm height) • Slides
Can the Centrifuge 5430/5430 R be operated in the cooling room at 4° C?The Centrifuge 5430 can be operated at an ambient temperature in the range from 4° C to 40° C. Operation in the cooling room at a temperature of down to 4° C is therefore possible. The permitted range of the ambient temperature is between 10 °C and 40 °C for the Centrifuge 5430 R, so that this centrifuge may not be operated in a cooling room at 4 °C.
What tubes do you recommend for centrifugation at 30,000 x g?The specifications of the tube manufacturers on the centrifugation resistance must generally be taken into consideration for the centrifugation of tubes of all kinds. This applies in particular for centrifugation at 30,000 x g, as only very few micro test tubes can withstand these extreme gravitational forces to date without breaking. The following tubes can, for example, be centrifuged at 30,000 x g: • Eppendorf Safe-Lock Tubes 0.5 mL • Eppendorf Safe-Lock Tubes 1.5 mL • Eppendorf Tubes 3810X 1.5 mL
When does the opening of the centrifuge lid take place automatically or manually?Following the end of a centrifuge run, only the lid of the Centrifuge 5430 is automatically opened in order to provide quicker access to the sample and to avoid potential heat accumulation. When working with radioactive material, this function should be deactivated in the device menu and the centrifuge lid manually opened upon conclusion of the centrifugation run. The Centrifuge 5430 R does not come equipped with the option of automatic or manual opening of the centrifuge lid. In order to maintain a consistent temperature in the rotor chamber and in the sample, the centrifuge lid for this device must always be manually opened by pressing the "open" key.
What is the meaning of the red knob on the rotor lid?A fixed-angle rotor with a red knob on the rotor lid indicates aerosol-tightness.
