Proven in use, high performance: Laboratory automation systems with centrifuge modules are now an essential feature of medical diagnostics labs. They are also of increasing importance in laboratories used for biotechnology and pharmaceutical research. The reason for this is their high efficiency and the consistent high quality of the results. The risk of infection is moreover minimized when handling potentially infectious samples. The greatest benefit, however, is that lab personnel do not have to carry out monotonous routine tasks.
The refrigerated ROTANTA 460 Robotic forms part of a large number of automation systems. The highly-developed C control panel enables all centrifugation runs to be carried out safely and consistently. The function of individual components such as the fan and compressor can be readily verified using this control panel. Its solid construction allows it to be run continuously for long periods.
It is of considerable benefit in pre-analysis in clinical chemistry and genome and pharmaceutical research. It considerably simplifies and optimises routine tasks. It has become an indispensable tool in pharmaceutical research as potential active substances are increasingly tested on cells to reduce the use of animals in research.
The ROTANTA 460 Robotic can be integrated perfectly into an automated laboratory and into all workstations. The centrifuge is loaded and unloaded by means of a robotic arm. All carriers and inserts can be matched exactly to the geometry of the robot and the grip arm. Upon request, Hettich will tailor carriers and inserts individually to robots. The system can be operated completely automatically through the perfect interplay of centrifuge and robot.
