    High Productivity:

    • Centrifuge achieves higher speeds—up to 22,000rpm/55,200 x g for faster separations and increased productivity.
    • Exceptional leading acceleration and deceleration rates deliver significant time savings and increase throughput.

    Unparalleled Safety:

    • The RC 6 Plus centrifuge is engineered to provide exceptional safety and flexibility.
    • It meets all CE and CSA safety requirements without bolting the unit to the floor, making it easy to install or relocate in your facility.
    • Powerful refrigeration system can cool all rotors to 4°C at top speeds, keeping samples from damage due to heat or freezing.
    • Rotors qurg Bioseal technology for microbiological containment are certified by HPA, Porton Down, UK.


    • Broad selection of rotors includes the new LEX carbon fiber rotor series and metal fixed angle, swinging bucket, microplate and continuous-flow designs.
    • Centrifuge is compatible with many Sorvall RC-6 and RC-5 series rotors for added cost effectiveness.
    Fiberlite Rotor Advantage:
    • These lightweight, carbon fiber rotors maximize performance with versatility, speed and a robust, corrosion-free design.
    • Corrosion- and fatigue-resistance provides unequalled durability.
    • Rotor is lightweight for simple handling and convenience and allow increased productivity with higher g-forces.
    • Secure investment is backed by a 15-year warranty.
    • Rotors are compatible with Thermo Scientific™ Nalgene™ bottles and tubes for complete centrifuge solutions.

    Advanced Functionality:

    • Intuitive controls allow easy operation by all users.
    • Bright LCD screen allows you to monitor your set and run conditions at a glance.
    • RPM/RCF Control allows the user to set runs to a maximum speed or to a desired g-force without a protocol conversion.
    • GMP/GLP- Compatible Data Management offers traceability and quality control for biopharmaceutical processing needs.
    • 30-program memory allows common protocols to be stored and retrieved easily and without error in a multi-user environment.
    • Access can be password-controlled.
    • Step-mode provides applications flexibility.
    • Program offers convenient start and stop times.
    • Integrator function (w2dt) applies the same total centrifugal effect to offer run-to-run reproducibility.
    • Pre-Cool function cools rotors.
