The ROTANTA 460 RF enables efficient and rapid centrifugation runs 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 potential active substances in research laboratories.

The ROTANTA 460 RF 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 RF has a rotor with a maximum RCF of 6,446 for the centrifugation of filter plates.

If there is a shortage of space above the bench and below the bench then the ROTANTA 460 RF can be positioned in a corner. It has a height of approx. one metre and can be easily loaded and unloaded by lab personnel of any height.

The functionality of the ROTANTA 460 RF makes it a valuable tool for the laboratory. The centrifuge has the following features:
Ergonomic operation and information display
Simple rotor change
C control panel 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 RF has the following safety features:
Lid locking while rotor is running
Emergency lid release
Lid dropping prevention
Automatic rotor recognition
Imbalance shut-off
Motor overheating prevention
Chamber overheating protection

The ROTANTA 460 RF is a practical floor-standing centrifuge that can be positioned where desired and 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
