Simplify your workflow with Hettich’s new Quick-Lift™ rotor and Memory Control System. Quick-Lift allows you to effortlessly install the rotor and manage your samples without tools or physical stress. Instead of loading the samples while the rotor is still in the centrifuge, Quick-Lift enables you to easily remove the rotor and load the samples safely on the benchtop. Additionally, the 1146 rotor is self-standing, decreasing the chance of spillage or other accidents. Once loaded, simply place the rotor onto the motor shaft and the rotor will automatically lock into position for safe centrifugation.

The Memory Control System further enables simplified and secure centrifugation by providing 10 pre-programmable settings for easy recall of application parameters. This feature not only saves time but ensures repeatability and limits programming errors.


In accordance with OSHA standards, excessive noise in the laboratory can lead to distractions, stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, and miscommunication.

  • Customer Reviews on EBA 280 Blood Tube Package 12 MicroCentrifuge from Hettich

    This met the requirements I needed for flat separation coag, STAT, and PPP. It's nice that it fits 12 tubes, a little more than other microcentrifuges. I also find this easy to program since the controls are easy to understand and it's straightforward. I use the memory recall a lot too since I work in r&d and tend to experiment. Even the noise-free operation helps out a lot since I find it hard to concentrate in a loud environment.

    Straightforward to use and offers robust features without being gimmicky. It's compact and fits well on my workbench. Operating it is also pretty clear-cut and easy to figure out.
