The EBA 280, Hettich’s new, high-performance clinical centrifuge, offers versatility, convenience, and safety within a compact, elegant frame. Though smaller than a standard toaster oven, the EBA 280 maximizes its dimensions to fit 90° swing-out rotors for flat separation. Hettich rotors for the EBA 280 fit all standard blood tubes, pediatric tubes, and KOVA tubes and feature the Hettich Quick-Lift Rotor System for easy installation and added safety.

With its impressive versatility, compactness, and performance, the EBA 280 sets a new standard for tabletop clinical centrifugation.


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. With Quiet operation, the EBA 280 is as quiet as a normal conversation. By reducing its noise, the EBA 280 with Quiet operation contributes to a calm, safe and productive work environment and will not increase noise levels within your lab.


Advanced safety features of the EBA 280 include its all-metal containment and the Hettich Safety-Lock™ lid, which ensures a safe, tight closure on the centrifuge chamber during operation.

Additionally, the EBA 280 employs the Hettich Easy-Lift™ lid that further limits repetitive stress injuries, spillage, and accidental sample disruption when loading and unloading your centrifuge.

Hettich centrifuges adhere to all national and international safety standards and certifications and, as always, are backed by Hettich’s five-year warranty and 24/7 direct support system.

  • Customer Reviews on EBA 280 Cell Culture Package MicroCentrifuge from Hettich

    Rotor imbalance is easy to detect with this microcentrifuge because of the locking feature. It's also easy to clean since the rotor and loads are removable. I also like that it's compact since our lab is not that big.

    Excellent for spinning down cells and general sample preparation tasks. I also got it with a biocontainment lid to avoid spilling but this runs effectively without that too. The advanced safety features make work more efficient too. I like the easy-lift and auto-lock cause it makes me more confident in using it and reduces the effort I have to exert.
