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 Robotic is an air-cooled, robotically operated microlitre centrifuge with PC control. Wherever processes can be automated, it will optimize the workflow. The unit spins tubes up to 2.0 ml, e.g. microlitre tubes or HPLC tubes, quickly and safely. Specializes the centrifuge for sample preparation in research laboratories of the life sciences, as well as for daily routine tasks in medical diagnostics or industrial quality control.
The HPLC technic is used in many fields of application, including the evaluation of clinical samples for their Vitamin D content. This is also true for the PCR which is used to detect HIV or hepatitis. With its swing-out rotors for microliter tubes, respectively HPLC- tubes the Mikro 220 robotic suits HTP-laboratories.
Research and industry
In the field of food analysis respectively molecular biology, HPLC and PCR are applied very often, e. g. when performing DNA extraction. The automated centrifugation of microliter tubes or HPLC vials in swing-out rotors is recommended, in the sample prep process in HTP laboratories.
