Centrifuges


Process everyday samples with the Thermo Scientific Heraeus Megafuge 16 Centrifuge Series, which offers exceptional capacity, ergonomics and value.

Perfect for clinical protocols, cell culture applications and microplate processing, the refrigerated version is designed for handling temperature-sensitive sample processing between -10° and +40°C.

Easy To Use

  • Intuitive controls simplify operation and provide detailed information on a wide range of operating parameters and processing status for optimal performance.
  • Motorized lid latch enables one finger downward motion for easiest closing and locking of centrifuge lid, even on tall benches.

Thermo Scientific Auto-Lock III Rotor System

  • Secure locking system for easy push-button installation and exchange of rotors
  • Saves time switching between applications
  • Easy access to rotor chamber for quick cleaning, a healthier working environment and longer unit life

Thermo Scientific ClickSeal Bucket Sealing System

  • Biocontainment solution that seals with a snap; eliminates screw caps and complicated clips
  • Glove-friendly, one-handed open/close capability
  • Certified by CAMR in Porton Down, UK

Thermo Scientific SMARTSpin Technology

  • Advanced rotor management system maximizes acceleration, braking and residual load imbalance for each rotor and bucket option
  • Optimizes safety and improves separations

Space-Savings Design

  • Compact dimensions optimize work area.
  • Ergonomic height and curved design ensure easy sample loading and unloading and easy cleaning.

Outstanding Energy Efficiency

Up to 40% energy consumption savings on industry standard protocols, such as standard blood separation or conical tubes processing
