Since the introduction of the first robotically integrated centrifuges over 25 years ago, Hettich is setting the benchmark in centrifuge automation technology. Integrated in pre- analytic automation systems they are known for quality, precision and safety.
The MIKRO 220 automated centrifuge is an air-cooled, externally controlled microliter centrifuge with PC activation. It centrifuges tubes up to 2.0 mL (e.g., microliter tubes) quickly and safely. Ideal for sample preparation for laboratories of the life sciences as well as for daily routine tasks in medical diagnostics.
This automated centrifuge is ideal for the preparation of small clinical samples as well as for the preparation of bacteria for diagnostic purposes. It´s high speed swing-out rotor for microliter tubes ensures a quick and accurate separation result. Due to its compact design the centrifuge fits into almost all HTP-platforms.
The high-speed of up to a RCF of 18,000 enables the automation of molecular biology applications like nucleic acid preparation, extractions and PCR sample preparation. According to this the centrifuge could be integrated into fully automated NGS automates for sample preparation.
