POWER IN NUMBERS

The ROTIXA 500 RS offers several convenient features to ensure your laboratory consistently receives the highest product quality. HettLiner blood bag inserts support the sample during centrifugation to maintain its intended shape and facilitate ideal separation. Our Balancing Weights enable users to precisely balance the rotor for smooth rotations and best results.

The ROTIXA 500 RS also provides users with secure programming control and transparent documentation for reliable repeatability. A front-facing control panel enables users to easily store and recall application parameters. The control panel also features a key-lock to prevent desired parameters from being accidently altered. Centrifugation results are recorded simply with the HettInfo data documentation system, which can be added at any time and can support up to 29 centrifuges and 3 external barcode units.

Does this section actually provide value to the customer?

Yes, but not with these questions. This is just to show the product page and ask for any feedback prior to adding individual product pages.

Can it replace my Statspin VT?

Yes! Just send us the purchase order.

Is this a centrifuge?

I believe the page has the word “centrifuge” about 15 times so yes, it is a centrifuge.

Can I get it for free?

No.

Can I spin blood bags with this centrifuge?

Good luck with that!
