Reduce Turnaround Time

Eliminate wait time by using a centrifuge array in accessioning to eliminate queuing. The array takes advantage of the DASH Apex 4’s compact size to allow samples to be spun as soon as they arrive.

Unique Features

The DASH Apex 4 is a high-speed benchtop centrifuge designed to rapidly separate fluids in a syringe-type collection tube. Its compact size saves on bench space and allows samples to be moved easily around the lab. Weighing only 4.3 lbs (1.95 kg) and measuring 6.87 in x 7 in x 7 in (17 cm x 18 cm x 18 cm), the DASH Apex 4 is the smallest model in the DASH STAT centrifuge family. The simple two-button interface makes it easy to select a preset or program custom STAT cycles based on your IFUs and unique validation needs. Use all three presets, or set and lock to a single cycle for maximum repeatability. Our patented swing-out horizontal rotor is compatible with recommended IFUs for all common tube manufacturers, including Greiner and BD. Spin four tubes up to 6 mL, or 1.5-2 mL micro BD Microtainers.

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 4?
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.
