Whether you are centrifuging Platelet-Poor-Plasma or Platelet-Rich-Plasma, the Model 842VES can accurately process samples and greatly reduce overall operational time. Variable acceleration and deceleration, along with the ability to save settings in up to 10 memory locations, results in an extremely flexible centrifuge.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the warranty on Drucker’s centrifuges?

Drucker Diagnostics provides a two (2) year parts and labor warranty (except the rotor – see question below).

What is the warranty on the rotor?

All rotors carry a lifetime warranty. Should the rotor ever fail, for as long as you own your centrifuge, Drucker Diagnostics will replace it free of charge.

Will I need to purchase accessories for the centrifuge separately?

All of our centrifuges are sold complete with the rotor and tube holders. No additional accessories are necessary though there are additional options available for purchase.

How often should my centrifuge be calibrated?

Drucker Diagnostics recommends the centrifuge be calibrated every 2 years or 5,000 cycles.
