The Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC-6 Plus Centrifuge (CAT No. 46910) allows you to precisely process high-throughput samples with exceptional functionality, safety, and reliability all in a compact design.


High Productivity:

  • Centrifuge achieves higher speeds—up to 22,000rpm/55,200 × g for faster separations and increased productivity.
  • Exceptional leading acceleration and deceleration rates deliver significant time savings and increase throughput.

Unparalleled Safety:

  • The RC 6 Plus centrifuge is engineered to provide exceptional safety and flexibility.
  • It meets all CE and CSA safety requirements without bolting the unit to the floor, making it easy to install or relocate in your facility.
  • Powerful refrigeration system can cool all rotors to 4°C at top speeds, keeping samples from damage due to heat or freezing.
  • Rotors qurg Bioseal technology for microbiological containment are certified by HPA, Porton Down, UK.


  • Broad selection of rotors includes the new LEX carbon fiber rotor series and metal fixed angle, swinging bucket, microplate and continuous-flow designs.
  • Centrifuge is compatible with many Sorvall RC-6 and RC-5 series rotors for added cost effectiveness.

Fiberlite Rotor Advantage:

  • These lightweight, carbon fiber rotors maximize performance with versatility, speed and a robust, corrosion-free design.
  • Corrosion- and fatigue-resistance provides unequalled durability.
  • Rotor is lightweight for simple handling and convenience and allow increased productivity with higher g-forces.
  • Secure investment is backed by a 15-year warranty.
  • Rotors are compatible with Thermo Scientific™ Nalgene™ bottles and tubes for complete centrifuge solutions.

Advanced Functionality:

  • Intuitive controls allow easy operation by all users.
  • Bright LCD screen allows you to monitor your set and run conditions at a glance.
  • RPM/RCF Control allows the user to set runs to a maximum speed or to a desired g-force without a protocol conversion.
  • GMP/GLP- Compatible Data Management offers traceability and quality control for biopharmaceutical processing needs.
  • 30-program memory allows common protocols to be stored and retrieved easily and without error in a multi-user environment.
  • Access can be password-controlled.
  • Step-mode provides applications flexibility.
  • Program offers convenient start and stop times.
  • Integrator function (w2dt) applies the same total centrifugal effect to offer run-to-run reproducibility.
  • Pre-Cool function cools rotors.
