The ROTANTA 460 RC enables efficient and rapid results in research and analytical laboratories. The centrifuge helps to reduce centrifugation times substantially and can be relied on to handle a high throughput of samples. Its powerful refrigeration capability means that the chosen temperature will be reached quickly and maintained.

With the swing-out rotor the maximum RCF is 6,446, and an RCF of 24,400 can be achieved with an angle rotor. The temperature can be set to any desired value in the range -20 °C to +40 °C (-4 °F to +104 °F). The centrifuge is also equipped with stand-by cooling. Its outstanding performance, reliable cooling and comprehensive range of accessories enable laboratory procedures to be carried out quickly and free of interruptions.

Its maximum capacity of three litres per run is valued in clinics and laboratories as well as R&D laboratories in the life sciences. A wide range of accessories is available for high-throughput screening of active substances in research laboratories.

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

The underbench ROTANTA 460 RC is provided with castors. It can be easily pushed under a lab bench and thus frees up space on top of the bench.

The functionality of the ROTANTA 460 RC makes it a valuable tool for the laboratory. The centrifuge has the following features:
Ergonomic operation and information display
Rotor change is simple
C control panel that is easy to use: Complex centrifugation programs can be easily entered, stored and called up as needed.
98 programmable memories
Unauthorized operation or modification of stored programs is prevented.
The centrifuge run time can be switched between “at start” (commences from the start) and “at speed” (time of reaching the set speed)
Special braking ramps for the centrifugation of blood bags
Program linking to connect a number of centrifugation runs (optional)

For decades, ROTANTA centrifuges have been synonymous with the highest standards in terms of quality and safety. The ROTANTA 460 RC has the following safety features:
Lid locking while rotor is running
Emergency lid release
Lid fall prevention mechanism
Automatic rotor recognition
Imbalance shut-off
Motor overheating prevention
Chamber overheating prevention

The ROTANTA 460 RC offers high flexibility, can be positioned under a laboratory bench and thus saves space. The centrifuge has a robust construction and features durable components such as:
Metal casing
Centrifugation chamber of rust-free stainless steel
Ergonomic operation and information display
