Dear Yoonsuk Park:
I have an alternative suggestion, if you are interested. We purchased
a refrigerated microfuge from Heraeus. It is called a Heraeus Biofuge
Fresco. Catalog number 75005515. We talked them down to $2000 total
for a "demo" model (the list price is around $3000). It is excellent.
Since then we bought a second one. It is very well made and it hasn't
given us ANY problems at all. Their telephone number (on the side of
the microfuge) is 800-HERAEUS. You might want to consider it, since
you could buy two of them from Eppendorf prices.
