Easy to Use

The simple two-button interface makes it easy to choose from three presets, or lock to a single cycle for maximum repeatability. Spin 75-100 mm (3-10 mL) tubes in the same holder.

Easy to Monitor

Prevent forgotten samples and reduce TAT with DASH's LED lid lighting system. Lights are off when the centrifuge is ready to load, on when running, and flashing at the end of each cycle.

Engineered for Safety

Protect your lab with imbalance detection and a shatterproof lid which can only be opened when the centrifuge's rotor is stopped, even if the unit loses power.

Unique Features

Your lab is at the heart of fast and accurate healthcare delivery. That means pressure. Pressure for quick turnaround times. Pressure for high-quality samples. You have an efficient team, so how can you speed up and simplify the testing process without drastic workflow changes or taking big bites out of your budget?

Problem solved! Meet the DASH Apex 6 by Drucker Diagnostics, a new cost-effective centrifuge that can cut your STAT turnaround time in half. With an innovative and patented design, the Apex 6 provides quality plasma samples in minutes. Now lab results can be analyzed and returned to doctors in record time. The Apex 6 is small and nimble. An array can fit on any table top area, including your accessioning station, so plasma tubes can be spun right after they received. No queuing necessary. Just drop tubes in and spin.

Even better, there’s no programming required. DASH Apex centrifuges are ready to use out of the box thanks to a simple two-button interface. And they fit any 75 or 100 mm tube, so say goodbye to unique holders that cost you time and money. But what if you need additional help? A Drucker Diagnostics site visit will show you how to make some small changes, integrate DASH centrifuges into your lab and reduce your STAT turnaround time. We also provide free online training, software, webinars and other resources on our website.

Faster turnaround time. High quality samples. Improved workflow. When you’re at the heart of healthcare, small changes can make a big impact. For more information, contact our team today.

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.

What should be used to clean and disinfect the DASH Apex 6?
ONLY isopropyl alcohol, soap and water, or a 10% (5,500 PPM) bleach solution should be used for cleaning and disinfection of the centrifuge and accessories. All surfaces must be dried immediately after cleaning and disinfecting.

What cleaning solutions should be avoided?
TBQ Germicidal products should not be used as they will cause damage to the centrifuge and void the warranty. The use of fully/partially halogenated hydrocarbons, ketones, esters, ethers, benzyls, ethyl benzenes, and all other chemicals not prescribed by Drucker Diagnostics should not be used as they may cause damage to the rotor chamber, rotor, tube holders, accessories, and centrifuge exterior. If this occurs the warranty will be voided.
