Classic Centrifuge Sets New Standards

Classic-Centrifuge-Sets-New-StandardsHettich’s classic Rotina 380/380R is a solid benchtop centrifuge with built-in safety features. This centrifuge is setting new standards in performance and utility.

The Rotina 380 and 380R centrifuges can process samples up to volumes of 4 x 290ml at a maximum relative centrifugal force (RCF) of 4.863. There are also angle rotors available for accommodating conical 50ml tubes with screw-cap generating a maximum RCF of 16.504 and the tubes can be accelerated to an RCF of 24.4000. The centrifuge accepts a considerable variety of tubes per run. In one cycle, 64 vactainers (13 x 100mm), 52 monovettes (16 x 92mm), 36 conical 15ml tubes (Falcon type) or 16 conical 50ml tubes (Falcon type) can be centrifuged.

With the autoclavable and aerosol-tight accessories (TUV tested) toxic or infectious materials can be processed safely for both the user and environment. The rotor chamber is made of stainless steel and is, therefore, easy to clean. Ease of use is provided by powered lid locking, automatic rotor detection and standby cooling. The 380R enables centrifugation of thermosensitive samples at temperatures between -20°C and 40°C. Using the high-class C control panel, sophisticated parameter combinations can be conveniently entered, stored and recalled in the 98 program storage places available. All Hettich centrifuges are also compliant with EU and German standards.
