Adaptors are available for users who wish to spin smaller tubes.
Like the EBA 200 and EBA 200 S, the EBA 270 is a small capacity centrifuge designed to spin 15ml tubes. The difference is that the EBA 270 will spin these 15ml tubes in a swing-out rotor, not an angled one. This means that separation will be flat. The EBA 270 can spin 6 x 15ml tubes up to speeds of 4,000 rpm (2,254 xg). There is a wide range of adaptors available for users who wish to spin smaller tubes.
EBA 280 & 280S
The EBA 280 and EBA 280 S are small but extremely versatile centrifuges owing to the fact that they can spin both swing-out and angle rotors on a small footprint. These centrifuges have a maximum capacity of 6 x 50ml and will reach speeds of up to 6,000 rpm (5,071 xg in the EBA 280 S). There is a wide range of both angle and swing-out rotors available depending on the needs of the user.
The Haematokrit 200 is a haematocrit centrifuge designed to spin up to 24 x 75mm capillaries. The maximum speed of this centrifuge is 13,000 rpm (16,060 xg). The screw top, clear lid for the 24 place rotor also has a handy capillary reader printed on it which makes taking readings very easy.
The Mikro 185 centrifuge is a super versatile micro-centrifuge designed to spin 24 x 1.5/2ml micro tubes up to speeds of 13,300 rpm. This equates to a maximum RCF of 17,008 xg. There are various tube adaptors for users who want to spin smaller tubes. Like most Hettich centrifuges, the Mikro 185 is IVD compliant meaning that it meets the standards of the European directive 98/79/EC.
Mikro 200 & 200R

Rotixa 500 RS
The Rotixa 500 RS is a large capacity, refrigerated centrifuge capable of spinning samples up to 1 litre at 10,000 rpm. The 4 x 1,000ml rotor uses square buckets to process tubes and round one to process blood bags. The round buckets can accommodate single, double, triple or quadruple blood bags. A set of balancing weights are available to make up the weight difference when spinning blood bags of difference weights.
Roto Silenta 630 RS
The Roto Silenta 630 RS is the flagship centrifuge model from Hettich. It is designed to spin very large quantities of tubes and blood bags at speeds of up to 6,000 rpm (6,520 xg). Ideally suited for blood bank environments, the Roto Silenta 630 RS can spin quadruple bags from a variety of different manufacturers including Baxter/Fenwal, Fresenius and Terumo.
