The Beckman Coulter H6002 Horizontal Tube Rotor, P/N 363000, is a bowl rotor that spins tubes horizontally in tube holders. This rotor develops centrifugal forces that can efficiently pellet subcellular organelles, viruses, bacteria, mitochondria, chloroplasts, or algae. The rotor carries a range of tube sizes (from 250 μL to 1.8 mL) in color-coded anodized aluminum holders, which may also be used as tube racks outside the rotor. The rotor and lid are made of aluminum and are black-anodized for corrosion resistance.
