Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC 6 Centrifuge With 4 ROTORS


Thermo Scientific Sorvall RC6 Centrifuge with 4 Rotors. Condition is Seller Refurbished. Complete with a full PM + Calibration Report. 

Instrument also comes with a 30 day parts warranty. Additional fee for crate is $295 + Shipping cost.
This centrifuge has been inspected by our service technician and has had preventative maintenance service done, including it’s motor fan replaced
with a brand new one, along with it’s radiator and air vent both cleaned of all dust build-up.
We have also checked the centrifuges refrigeration system to cool properly (we are licensed to handle refrigeration) along with a
freon charge (if needed) and a special compressor additive to prolong your compressors lifespan.
All these services being done will ensure the life of your centrifuge, and can prevent costly problems
from arising in the future such as your units refrigeration failing and your drive/motor from failing.
This centrifuge comes with 2 aluminum rotors and 2 Super-Lite Rotors. (Super-lite rotors are much lighter than their
aluminum counterparts and supersede their aluminum counterparts).
The super-Lite Rotors can achieve higher speeds than the aluminum, allowing your centrifuge to achieve a higher throughput.
This feature also makes for a much lighter rotor to be able to handle in and out of the centrifuge,
and also provides less strain on your systems drive system as the rotor is much lighter.
This instrument comes with 4 Rotors.  Each rotor has been given new O-Rings to ensure there are no leaks during your run,
as well as being test run at high speed to ensure the rotor is running smooth and balanced.
Rotors Included: 1 8x50ml Rotor, 1 12x50ml, 1 6x250ml Rotor, 1 6x500ml Rotor.


The Thermo Scientific™ Sorvall™ RC 6 Plus Centrifuge has been discontinued. Please consider our recommended replacement: Thermo Scientific™ Sorvall™ LYNX Superspeed Centrifuge Series.


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.
