Blood separation is one of the most meticulous processes in a clinical laboratory. It is usually done via a procedure called centrifugation. In order to carry out this process, clinics, hospitals, and medical diagnostic centres use a blood centrifuge.
Blood centrifuges come in different brands and models, and one of the most trusted names is the Hettich Roto Silenta 630 RS.
Key features of the Roto Silenta 630 RS
The Roto Silenta 630 RS a heavy-duty floor-standing centrifuge that is known for its rapid and efficient centrifugation of blood bags. It has the capacity to spin up to 12-litre of samples or 12 blood bags during each run. It comes with four and six-place rotor options to offer the best possible fit of the samples.
The Roto Silenta 630 RS is usually found in the following fields of application:
- clinical chemistry, where blood and other fluid samples are analysed to evaluate a patient’s health status;
- industry and research development, such as analysing blood samples to develop treatment solutions, including vaccines
- In industrial or research and development environments, the Roto Silenta 630 RS is used to accommodate six vessels, each up to 2,000 ml.
Other standout features
The Roto Silenta 630 RS is cited to be one of the most reliable floor-standing centrifuges in the market. This means that it can maintain optimal speed and balance, as well as temperature levels during centrifugation procedures.
Unlike its contemporaries, the Roto Silenta 630 RS runs in low noise levels, making it suitable in almost all types of laboratory conditions. Its extensive range of carriers for blood collection tubes, bottles, standard tubes, and blood bag systems allows for multi-purpose centrifugation in one rotor; no changing of rotors is required.
