EBA 200 & 200S
The EBA 200 is the smallest centrifuge produced by Hettich. It is capable of speeds up to 6,000 rpm which equates to a maximum RCF of 3,461 xg. This centrifuge has a capacity of 8 x 15ml making it the ideal choice for small clinical practices who want to centrifuge their own blood tubes. 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
The Mikro 200 is one of the fastest centrifuges in its class. It has the same capacity as the Mikro 185 but it can spin up to 30 micro tubes instead of just 24. The maximum speed is slightly higher too at 15,000 rpm (21,382 xg). There are six rotors available which will cover most clinical applications. All rotors can be supplied with lids. There are also some tube adaptors which can be used for accommodating smaller tubes in the same rotor.
Mikro 220 & 220R
The Mikro 220 is a powerful, compact benchtop centrifuge designed to spin micro tubes and haematocrit capillaries up to speeds of 18,000 rpm (31, 514 xg). There are a variety of rotors available for use in the Mikro 220. Users can spin up to 120ml of sample using the 60 x 2ml rotor.
The Rotofix 32 A is a rugged, yet versatile medium capacity benchtop centrifuge by Hettich. Popular in doctors’ practices and small hospitals, this non-refrigerated centrifuge can be used with a range of fixed angle or swing-out rotors. There is even a special rotor for spinning cyto chambers. This centrifuge has a capacity of 4 x 100ml and can reach speeds of up to 6,000 rpm (4,226 xg).
Universal 320 & 320R
With a capacity of 4 x 200ml and a maximum speed of 15,000 rpm (21,382 xg), the Universal 320 is a popular choice for the laboratory manager. Whether the user is spinning blood tubes, haematocrit capillaries, cyto chambers or micro plates, the choice of rotors/carriers is vast. There is a good reason why Hettich chose to call this centrifuge ‘Universal’!
Rotina 380 & 380R
The Rotina 380 is slightly larger in capacity when compared to the Universal 320, but achieves the same speeds, delivering excellent separation results every time. The maximum capacity of the Rotina 380 is 4 x 290ml and a wide range of accessories are available to meet the needs of most users.
Rotina 420 & 420R
The Rotina 420 is a compact, non-refrigerated benchtop centrifuge with a maximum capacity of 4 x 600ml. It is capable of spinning up to 140 standard sized blood tubes or 16 micro plates. This centrifuge is ideal for use in clinical chemistry, biotechnology and other life science applications. Capable of speeds up to 15,000 rpm (24,400 xg), the Rotina 420 is a superb addition to any laboratory and like all Hettich centrifuges comes with a multi-year warranty.
Rotanta 460 & 460R
The Rotanta 460 has a capacity of 4 x 750ml and can reach speeds up to 15,000 rpm which equates to 24,400xg. This 3 litre centrifuge is a real workhorse and has nearly 30 different rotor/bucket combinations at its disposal. This centrifuge is ideal for users with a high through-put of tubes.
Rotanta 460 RC & 460 RF
The Rotanta 460 is also available in a floor-standing version for users who have limited bench space. The Rotanta 460 RC is approximately 68cm high which makes it an ideal under-bench centrifuge. This frees up space on the bench for other laboratory equipment.
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. The 2,000ml bucket is more than capable of accommodating blood bags including ancillary tubing and filters.
