Efficient, results-oriented working processes are top priority in both research and routine laboratories. Advanced laboratory technology makes a significant contribution to shortening processing times. For decades, ROTANTA centrifuges from Hettich have been distinguished by the highest quality. They have responded to the fast-paced changes in laboratory environments with the continuous development of new, technically outstanding solutions. The ROTANTA 460 models are carrying on this tradition of qualtity. Enhanced performance and an extended range of accessories guarantee fast, trouble-free operation in daily laboratory use. With a maximum capacity of 3 litres per run, they are proving themselves in clinics and laboratory centres, as well as in Life Science R&D departments. 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 ROTANTA 460 especially for its autoclavable and aerosol-tight accessories. These versatile benchtop centrifuges feature a filter plate rotor with a RCF of 6,446 for purifying DNA / RNA.
Extensive Range of Accessories
With high throughput, short separating times, fully developed technology, and a wide range of accessories the ROTANTA 460 models perfectly meet the requirements of modern Life Science laboratories. Maximum 6,446 RCF can be generated with a swing-out rotor, 24,400 RCF with an angle rotor. In swing-out position e.g. up to 120 blood collection tubes, 240 x 2 ml microlitre tubes, 4 x 750 ml bottles, 24 microtitre plates, 4 deep well plates with filter columns for RNA/DNA purification can be processed per run. For seperation in angle position a choice of 3 rotors for max. 6 x 94 ml, 6 x 250 ml, and 30 x 1.5/2 ml is available. With aerosol-tight (TÜV-tested in compliance with DIN EN 61010, part 2 - 020) and autoclavable accessoires (up to 121°C or 134°C) also infectious samples can be centrifuged safe for operator and environment.

Programming the centrifuges is extremly easy. With the standard N control panel 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 programmes can be stored and recalled. Maximum user-friendliness is provided by the extended S control panel (optional). 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 programmes 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 ROTANTA 460 line feature automatic lid locking. When the rotor has come to a standstill after centrifugation the lid opens at the touch of a button. With the refrigerated ROTANTA 460 centrifuges temperature is controllable within a range of -20°C to +40°C, accurate to 1°C
