It can be used for the centrifugation of food samples, cell suspensions, precipitates from chemical reactions, soil samples or blood. The refrigerated centrifuge maintains the samples at the set temperature without fluctuation.
In addition to the known blood collection tubes, the centrifuge can also be used for conical tubes with a screw cap, microtitre plates and centrifuge bottles up to 1,000 ml.
The inserts for racks used in various blood analysers (e.g., those of Olympus or Hitachi) are a particular advantage. Round-bottom tubes up to 250 ml can also be centrifuged with the ROTIXA 500 RS.
The centrifuge has the following capacity per run:
- 192 blood collection tubes
- 32 x 50 ml conical tubes with a screw cap
- 16 microtitre plates of standard format
- 20 Hitachi racks
- 4 x 1,000 ml bottles
- 4 blood bag systems
