An old but sturdy piece of kit – useful for microscopy – allows samples to be concentrated (e.g. pond water samples) making it easier to find targets of interest. Only problem is that the timer does not work so I need to source one of those.
I have found a replacement timer – I intend to ask Ed whether he can take a look with me to see if we can work out how to replace it – not asked him yet – help please, Ed!
I also picked up a spare rotor – the screw on top was missing from mine.
All these problems with second hand stuff – its cheap but often needs work to get it working – but then that is the fun of the thing.
Below are photos of the centifuge, spare rotor and new timer.
