A high-capacity, low profile, quiet, non-refrigerated , bench top centrifuge with high speed options capable of utilizing multiple and vessel types for use in both low to high throughput applications.

Item no.:  G-16-1US

Availability:  On Request

  • Optimum combination - Rotors for Sartorius VivaSpin® filtration units
  • Safety – Optional program protection against unauthorized use or modification
  • Smart Control – Setting all run parameters using just one control knob
  • Volume | Capacity: 4 × 400 ml | 1,600 ml

The benchtop centrifuge Centrisart® G-16 was especially developed for high throughput applications that require large capacity. The choice of five fixed-angle and two swing-out rotors with different adapters facilitates the centrifugation of virtually all vessel types between 0.2 ml to 400 ml. The high capacity is perfectly suited for cell harvesting in the field of cell culture or fermentation or for high-throughput applications in molecular biology or protein purification. In addition to providing high flexibility of different rotors and accessories the benchtop centrifuge features a maximum speed up to 15,300 rpm and is well-suited for many lab applications.

The ergonomic design of the centrifuge Centrisart® G-16 simplifies sample loading and unloading and programming. The splash-proof user interface can be operated with gloves and allows the setting of all important operation parameters using a single knob. The memory capacity of 50 programs offers enough space to permanently store different methods. Saved programs can be protected by a program-lock from unauthorized use or modification. For further protection of samples the choice between each 10 acceleration and braking curves prevents churning up of sensitive material.

Benchtop centrifuge Centrisart® G-16 stands out due to a notable number of safety features. Biosafe lids for swing-out rotors and hermetically sealing lids for fixed-angle rotors are aerosol-tight and effectively prevent the spread of hazardous aerosols. The rotor chamber made of stainless steel and the rotors exhibit high resistance to various chemical substances and can easily be cleaned and decontaminated. In addition, the integrated rotor- and imbalance detection securely preclude exceeding of the permitted maximum rotor speed and acceleration of asymmetrically loaded to a critical speed.
