Fiberlite key features and benefits

Performance tested and ready to be used with automatic rotor recognition and capability to reach higher speeds than metal equivalents, improving separations.

Design with corrosion- and fatigue-resistance to maintain the rotor's structural integrity for outstanding durability and maintenance convenience.

Value in on-site clinics and maintenance to ensure proper use and care to extend life of your rotors, continuous improvements in design to increase capacities for efficiency and throughput, and industry-leading 15-year warranty.

Ergonomics like AutoLock rotor exchange allow 3-second, push-button rotor exchange, integrated handle makes gripping easy, and unique lightweight carbon fiber enables use in multiple applications.

Biocontainment with rotor and lid combinations that protect the user, the centrifuge and the samples, and certified by Public Health England, Porton Down UK.
