Large Capacity Centrifuges

High Speed Centrifuges



Especially ideal for high-throughput blood banking and bioprocessing applications.

  • Enhanced capacity plus an ergonomic design
  • Flexibility to select higher capacity rotors or match existing workflows

High speed superspeed centrifuges with maximized capacity up to 6 liters for application flexibility.

  • High speed separations ideal for shared lab settings
  • Fiberlite carbon fiber rotors plus Auto-Lock rotor exchange and Auto-ID

Specially designed for high-performance applications in cellular biology, drug discovery, nanotechnology and others.

  • Small footprint ideal for space-challenged labs
  • Fiberlite carbon fiber rotors for unequalled durability and performance
