Innovative Thermo Scientific rotor technologies

clickseal biocontainment lids

One-handed sample protection, biocontainment certified*

Glove-friendly, one-handed open/close capability of our ClickSeal biocontainment lids provide simple operation for all laboratory users, eliminating multi-turn screw caps and complicated high pressure clips.

autolock rotor exchange

Secure, push-button rotor exchange in as little as 3 seconds

Trouble-free rotor installation and removal with Auto-Lock rotor exchange provides full chamber access for cleaning convenience, quick switch between applications, and the flexibility to evolve with the needs of your lab. No tools required. No complicated rotor changing procedures.

fiberlite carbon fiber rotors

Outstanding durability, ergonomics and performance

Lightweight carbon fiber and innovative construction allow unique rotor designs not possible with metal. Plus, their corrosion- and fatigue-resistance secures the rotor’s structural integrity for outstanding durability, and it's backed by a 15-year limited warranty.**

  Ventilated centrifuges are great for samples that are not temperature sensitive. Remember that ventilated centrifuges may not be at the laboratory's ambient room temperature, since spinning rotors create heat. Any samples that can be negatively impacted by an increase in temperature would benefit. When spinning large capacity rotors at higher speeds, there is more heat; refrigeration can maintain optimal temperatures.
