Rotanta 460 R


The ROTANTA 460 R enables efficient centrifugation in research and analytical laboratories. The centrifuge enables centrifugation times to be reduced substantially and is a reliable workhorse for high sample volumes and ideal for high-throughput screening. Its high-performance cooling ensures that the selected temperature is maintained.

An RCF of 6,446 can be achieved in a swing-out rotor and a value of 24,400 in an angle rotor. The temperature can be set to any value in the range -20 °C to +40 °C (-4 °F to +104 °F). The centrifuge additionally has stand-by cooling. Its outstanding performance, reliable cooling and comprehensive range of accessories make this centrifuge the ideal choice for routine centrifugation runs.

Its maximum capacity of three litres per run makes it a valuable tool in clinics and analytical laboratories, as well as the R&D sections of life science institutions. A large range of accessories is available for high-throughput screening of novel substances in research laboratories.

The ROTANTA 460 R is valued in the fields of biotechnology, microbiology and throughout the pharmaceutical industry because of its autoclavable and aerosol-tight accessories. The centrifuge has a rotor with a maximum RCF of 6,446 for the centrifugation of filter plates.

Information is available on request on variants such as the ROTANTA 460 R with connection for nitrogen flushing (catalogue No. 5660-20), a heating and cooling version for temperatures up to 90 °C (catalogue No. 5660-50) and a heating and cooling version with connection for nitrogen flushing (catalogue No. 5660-70).

The ROTANTA 460 R makes everyday centrifugation easier because of its ergonomic design. The centrifuge has the following features:
Ergonomic operation and display field
Simple rotor change
Ergonomic C control panel This allows complex centrifugation programs to be entered easily, stored and called up as necessary
98 programmable memories
Safeguards against unauthorized operation or changes to stored programs
The centrifuge run time can be switched from “at start” (commences from the start) to “at speed” (commences when the set speed has been reached)
Special braking ramps for the centrifugation of blood bags
Program-linking to connect a number of centrifugation runs (optional)

ROTANTA benchtop centrifuges have been proven in use for decades in terms of quality and safety. The ROTANTA 460 R has the following features:
Lid locking
Emergency lid release
Lid dropping protection
Automatic rotor recognition
Imbalance shut-off
