Product Details

The Sigma Centrifuge 4-16S and refrigerated Centrifuge 4-16KS are designed for use with all QIAGEN spin products – from small- and large-scale columns to 96-well plates. They provide streamlined, efficient processing in QIAGEN purification procedures and enable purification of nucleic acids from up to 192 samples in parallel.


Proven technology with improved performance

The Centrifuge 4-16S and Centrifuge 4-16KS combine the convenience and reliability that laboratories have come to rely on. An easy-to-use control panel simplifies programming, and 60 acceleration and deceleration curves are preinstalled. Up to 60 programs can be entered and stored by the user. The TFT display provides high contrast and readability, with all settings on one screen. In addition, programs and parameters can easily be code-protected (e.g., for regulated environments). Temperature-controlled centrifugation with the Centrifuge 4-16KS assures safe purification of your valuable samples and allows for cooling down to –20°C.

All QIAGEN spin protocols can be used with the Centrifuge 4-16S and Centrifuge 4-16KS without modification. The Plate Rotor 2 x 96 enables 96-well processing of up to two QIAGEN 96-well plates. The specifications of the plate rotor include: maximum speed, 6000 rpm; maximum centrifugal force, 5788 x g; height, 70 mm; weight, 2.2 kg; and bucket weight, 0.7 kg.

A wide range of fixed-angle and swing-out rotors is available from Sigma Laborzentrifugen GmbH for centrifugation of 5 ml, 15 ml and 50 ml tubes, as well as 1.5 ml and 2 ml microcentrifuge tubes.


The Centrifuge 4-16S and Centrifuge 4-16KS are highly suitable for everyday laboratory tasks, including high-throughput silica membrane processing.

The two protocols given below are for the use of the Ni-NTA Superflow 96 BioRobot® Kit in manual procedures. The kit has been specially designed and optimized for automated 6xHis-tagged protein purification on QIAGEN® BioRobot Systems. For more details of the advantages of BioRobot Systems see the Ni-NTA Superflow 96 BioRobot Kit Handbook supplied with the kit or contact one of the QIAGEN Technical Service Departments or local distributors listed on the last page of the handbook.
This protocol is designed for 96 parallel plasmid DNA preparations from 1.3 ml overnight cultures.


Do you have a protocol for purifying 2x96 PCR samples simultaneously with the QIAquick 96 PCR Purification Kit?

Yes, please follow the Supplementary Protocol 'Spin procedure for purifying the 2x96 PCR samples using the Plate Rotor 2x96, a special centrifuge and the QIAquick 96 PCR Purification Kit' (QQ01).  Please contact your local QIAGEN Technical Service for this protocol.

The protocol is for use with QIAGEN Centrifuges and the Plate Rotor 2 x 96.
