Designed to fit on a benchtop, the compact CTS Rotea system’s counterflow centrifugation technology is designed to gently and efficiently separate cells, aggregates, or beads based on size and to concentrate particles with outer diameter (OD) >5 μm.
The proprietary Draw Extraction Technology lets users gently and precisely recover washed and concentrated cells from the processing chamber. In addition, the CTS Rotea system incorporates multiple sensors to monitor and protect the integrity of the closed system.
