Hettich Rotanta 460 R Refrigerated Lab Centrifuge for High-Throughput Screening

11723L900_SKID $8,999.99

The ROTANTA 460 R enables efficient centrifugation in research and analytical laboratories. The centrifuge enables centrifugation times to be reduced substantially and is a reliable workhorse for high sample volumes and ideal for high-throughput screening. Its high-performance cooling ensures that the selected temperature is maintained.

An RCF of 6,446 can be achieved in a swing-out rotor and a value of 24,400 in an angle rotor. The temperature can be set to any value in the range -20 °C to +40 °C (-4 °F to +104 °F). The centrifuge additionally has stand-by cooling. Its outstanding performance, reliable cooling and comprehensive range of accessories make this centrifuge the ideal choice for routine centrifugation runs.

Its maximum capacity of three litres per run makes it a valuable tool in clinics and analytical laboratories, as well as the R&D sections of life science institutions. A large range of accessories is available for high-throughput screening of novel substances in research laboratories.

The ROTANTA 460 R is valued in the fields of biotechnology, microbiology and throughout the pharmaceutical industry because of its autoclavable and aerosol-tight accessories. The centrifuge has a rotor with a maximum RCF of 6,446 for the centrifugation of filter plates.
