Infectious samples can be centrifuged safely for both the operator and environment. This is because this centrifuge is aerosol tight (TšV-tested in compliance with DIN EN 61010- part 2 - 020) and has autoclavable biocontainment accessories that can withstand up to 121°C or 134°C.

Programming the Hettich Rotanta is extremely easy. Entry of the parameters is fast and precise with selector keys on the foil keypad. During centrifugation the actual values of the parameters are displayed. Three complete running programs can be stored and recalled.

Maximum user-friendliness is provided by the optional S control panel. With little manipulation a multitude of functions can be programmed via selector keys on the foil keypad and an adjusting knob. Up to 89 running programs can be memorized and recalled by their storing number. Models with the S control panel may be fitted with an interface for recording the centrifuging parameters with the data report system HETTINFO.

All centrifuges of the Hettich ROTANTA 460 line feature automatic lid locking. The lid opens at the touch of a button after the centrifugation process. With the refrigerated Hettich ROTANTA 460R version the temperature is within a controllable -20°C to +40° C- and accurate within 1°C.

For sample processing in clinical chemistry- a wide selection of adapters are available to accommodate the most varied types of tubes. Biotechnology molecular biology and the pharmaceutical industry value the Hettich ROTANTA 460 especially for its autoclavable and aerosol-tight accessories.
