Hettich Instruments is proud to announce the newest addition to its legendary line of microliter centrifuges, the MIKRO 220. Available in refrigerated and non-refrigerated versions, the MIKRO 220 is a compact, table-top centrifuge designed to perform in a variety of applications both in clinical laboratories as well as in genetic research, virology, cytology and bacteriology. In addition, the capacity, performance and cooling abilities of the MIKRO 220 are designed to meet the demands of sample preparation for PCR applications.

The MIKRO 220’s powerful, brushless motor is able to reach 18,000 RPM, allowing samples to spin at high speeds with minimal noise or vibration. This smooth running is further enhanced by the 220’s custom sound-dampening lid and insulation. On refrigerated models, the fast cooling system allows users to reach, and maintain temperatures as low as -20⁰ C.

Innovative safety features include an adjustable imbalance switch, automatic rotor recognition and automatic lid locking during operation. Like all Hettich centrifuges, the MIKRO 220 is fully compliant with CE and various international standards of quality and safety for laboratory devices.

Paying close attention to customer feedback, the MIKRO 220’s digital display control panel is backlit and features an easy touch keypad for quick programming. Users can control speed, RCF, temperature, running time and several other functions with the push of a single button.

The centrifuge is offered with the expert support of Hettich’s customer and technical service teams and comes standard with a 2 year warranty.
