Centrisart G-16C Refrigerated Benchtop Centrifuge

A high-capacity, refrigerated, 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-16C-1EU


  • Optimum combination - Rotors for Sartorius VivaSpin® filtration units
  • Sample protection – “Rapid temp” pre-cooling and reliable sample cooling to 4°C at max. speed
  • 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 C 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 maximum speed up to 15,300 rpm and is well-suited for many lab applications.

With its powerful cooling compressor combined with a laminated capacitor the refrigerated centrifuge G-16C ensures fast and reliable cooling of samples at all times. To prevent warming of temperature-sensitive samples the integrated 'Rapid Temp' function enables pre-cooling of the rotors and the rotor chamber to desired target temperatures. During centrifugation runs the cooling system of the refrigerated centrifuge G-16C guarantees that precious samples are reliably cooled to 4°C even at maximum speed. As a result valuable samples remain reliably cooled in the whole process. Further protection of the samples is provided by the choice between 10 acceleration and braking curves each that prevent churning up of sensitive sample materials.

Benchtop centrifuge Centrisart G-16C 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. The splash-proof user interface can be operated with gloves and allows the setting of all important operation parameters using a single control knob.
