The ROTANTA 460 enables efficient centrifugation in research and analytical laboratories. The centrifuge allows centrifugation times to be reduced substantially and is a reliable workhorse for high sample volumes and ideal for high-throughput screening.


Its maximum capacity of three litres per run makes it a valuable tool in clinics and analytical laboratories, as well as the R&D sections of life science institutions. A large range of accessories is available for high-throughput screening of potential active substances in research laboratories

The ROTANTA 460 is valued in the fields of biotechnology and molecular biology and throughout the pharmaceutical industry because of its autoclavable and aerosol-tight accessories. Infectious material can be safely centrifuged. The centrifuge has a rotor with a maximum RCF of 6,446 for the centrifugation of filter plates.

Safety and comfort in the workplace using carriers with a single-hand clamp lock

The clamp lock of the 4880 and 4890 carriers can be operated without difficulty with just one hand. The carriers can be comfortably carried by the clamp whether the lid is in place or not since, in contrast to the products from other manufacturers, the clamp is mounted on the carrier and not on the lid. If the lid is in place, the carrier can not only be carried with ease, it is also safe to transport.

  1. With the clamp in the “open” position the lid can be easily fitted and removed.
  2. With the clamp in the central position the carrier is sealed to prevent aerosol formation and can be safely carried to the centrifuge, workbench or another working space.
  3. With the clamp in the “close” position the carrier can be centrifuged without aerosol formation. The absence of aerosols has been verified by the TÜV in accordance with DIN EN 61010, Part 2-020

The ROTANTA 460 makes everyday centrifugation runs easier because of its ergonomic design. The centrifuge has the following features:      

  • Ergonomic operation and display field
  • Simple rotor change
  • Comfortable C control panel This allows complex centrifugation programs to be entered easily, stored and called up as necessary
  • 98 programmable memories
  • Safeguards against unauthorized operation or changes to stored programs
  • The centrifuge run time can be switched from "at start" (commences from the start) to "at speed" (commences when the set speed has been reached)
  • Program-linking to connect a number of centrifugation runs (optional)


ROTANTA benchtop centrifuges have been proven in use for decades in terms of quality and safety. The ROTANTA 460 has the following features:

  • Lid locking
