The stackable, easy swap “rack-in-rotor” system and refrigerated, high-speed capability leads to tremendous time savings!
Stackable “Rack-In-Rotor” System
TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuges allow you to stack up to 3 racks, allowing up to 72 1.5/2.0 mL microtubes in one cycle. Do more, save more time. The centrifuge’s ability to quickly and easily accommodate rotors for tubes of just about every size eliminates the need to have an arsenal of centrifuges occupying your lab space. The unique floor-standing design combined with high-capacity and flexibility is like having many centrifuges in one, making more room on your benchtop for research.
Instant Rotor Swap and Identification
Easily and instantly swap rotors for everything from 1.5 / 2.0 mL tubes to 96-well plates to 50 mL tubes. No need to pull out tools or buy several centrifuges to accommodate your large array of tubes and sample media. Plus the Rotor Identification System recognizes the rotor type to set appropriate speed limits.
Faster Sample Processing
The MDX-310 Refrigerated Centrifuge runs at up to 16,000 RPM / 21,130G. The high-power motor and inverter get your centrifuge running at full capacity (up to 16,000 rpm in under 20 seconds). LOTS of power. The chamber can cool down to the set temperature down to -9°C within three minutes, when released from ECO mode. Plus, the centrifuge timer function lets you set the timer from 1-99 minutes. Run the MDX-310 whenever you want and save your time for other business.
Centrifuge With A Small Footprint
The uniquely compact, floor-standing TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuge, measuring 345W x 465D x 860H mm, frees up valuable benchtop space for other equipment and most importantly, saves space for your work.
The rotor/rack system not only takes away the need to load/unload every tube every single time, but it also serves as a handy “rack” making it easy to move your sample to your benchtop or the refrigerator and back to the centrifuge again. The MDX-310 Centrifuges are also set on wheels that allow easy movement and storage of your centrifuge. When not in use, easily move it under a bench or to a comfortable, quiet corner of your laboratory.
The intuitive display and rotating jog dial allow you to easily and intuitively adjust the time, speed and temperature settings.Preset Memory Functions allow programming of 2 preset settings to easily switch back and forth between your favorite settings- quick and easy!
Safety Designed Into the Unit
The lid interlock system electronically locks and prevents the lid from opening while in operation. Smart sensing systems for everything from lid open/close, rotor imbalance, excessive speed, motor over-current (with circuit breaker), and abnormal chamber temperature. To protect your samples, the controls gradually bring down the speed of your centrifuge (45-sec slow deceleration from 500RPM to 0).
Controlling the motor fan drive during standby cooling, leads to a reduction in power consumption by up to 43%*, in the grand scheme helping to save you.*Reduction in electricity consumption between the MX-307 and previous generation MX-305. This figure may vary depending on the settings and performance of individual products.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. Are the TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuge rotors compatible with earlier model centrifuges?
Some centrifuge rotors are compatible with previous centrifuge models! It really depends on the rotors and which previous model centrifuge you have in your lab. We encourage you to reach out to our team to learn more. Contact us
Q2. Is the CA-300 rotor bucket a necessary accessory/component for operation?
Yes, the CA-300 rotor rack is essential for proper usage of the TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuge. It is what lets you stack up to 3 rotors in the centrifuge (depending on the specific rotor).
Q3. How does the TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuge know which rotor is currently inside the unit?
The TOMY MDX-310 Centrifuge is equipped with a Rotor Identification System. The system recognizes the installed rotor to operate within the optimal settings. The Rotor Identification System is an important safety feature that helps stop the unit from exceeding the maximum allowable speed for the specific rotor.
Q4. How do I load the tubes into the MDX-310 Centrifuge?
Like most centrifuges, the MDX-310 requires centrifugation tubes to be loaded symmetrically around the motor shaft. Opposing adapters, tubes, and samples should be of the same type and tubes should be filled equally to provide necessary counterbalance.
Q5. Does the MDX-310 Centrifuge have the ability to “flash” spin samples?
Absolutely! There is a FLASH function/mode and can even be set to Automatic Flash Mode. Details for short spins can be found in the MDX-310 Operator's Manual.
Q6. Can the MDX-310 display RCF as opposed to RPM?
Yes, adjusting the display to show RCF is simple settings change.
Q7. Can I store my favorite frequently used settings?
The MDX is equipped with a memory function that can save up to 6 sets of operating parameters including temperature, speed/RCF, run time and soft brake mode.
Q8. What is the best way to clean the rotors?
Remove the rotors, buckets, and racks from the unit and wash thoroughly with lukewarm (50°C) water, rinse and wipe dry. To sterilize use ethanol and avoid sterilizing in an autoclave or using dry heat.
Q1. Can this unit really run on battery power?
Yes, that is one of the key features of TOMY Multi Spin Centrifuge. The unit is fully operational on just 4 'AA' batteries. It can also run on AC power, and will give AC power priority if it is plugged in, so it won't drain the batteries. The battery and AC power variability makes the Multi Spin a great solution for "field" use.
Q2. Do I need to balance the tubes in the TOMY Multi Spin Centrifuge?
Yes, a balance loading pattern is required for proper operation of the unit.
Q3. What types of tubes can the Multi Spin handle?
The MA-1 rotor can utilize 2.0mL and 1.5mL tubes, while the PCR adapter (PA-1) holds 0.2mL tubes. Please refer to the specifications sheet for more detail.
Q4. What is included with the Multi Spin purchase?
The unit comes with the centrifuge, AC Adapter Set (5 types of plugs), the MA-1 Microtube rotor, the PA-1 tube stip rotor, and an Operator's Manual.
Q1. Can I really spin a single microtube in the One Spin without balancing?
Yes, this is the stand out feature for this particular centrifuge and is a great option for flashing a single microtube.
Q2. How do I operate the One Spin?
The centrifuge spins when the lid is closed. Load the tubes, close the lid and hold it down with your hand, release your hand to stop operation. It's that simple!
