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.

  • Customer Reviews on EBA 280S (High Performance) Blood Tube Package 6 MicroCentrifuge from Hettich

    Powerful device. Perfect for use in flat separation STAT, PPP and coag tests. It only takes a few minutes to have my samples ready.

    I work in a hospital and use this to isolate platelets in blood to get the platelet number. This device contributed a lot in speeding up my work. The safety locks are a must for me since I don't want anyone harmed or anything contaminated. Remarkable isolation capabilities. The easy lift is also a plus for me since I use this centrifuge a lot and it can get tiring sometimes.
