Enhance Your Cell Preparation - Proven Reliability

Cyto-Tek® Centrifuge arrow10CYTO-TEK® Cytocentrifuge

Three Chamber sizes for samples from 0.1 to 12 ml:

  • 1, 6, and 12 ml disposable chambers accommodate a wide range of sample sizes
  • One size fits all: the 1 ml filter combines versatility with convenience; handles all routine specimens up to 1 ml with only one set of accessories
  • User-selectable, rectangular viewing/target areas: 49, 196, and 420 mm2 essentially eliminates the need for multiple slides
  • Viewing area up to 14 x 30 mm
  • Dimensions in cm (W x D x H): 38 x 49 x 23
  • Dimensions in inches (W x D x H): 15 x 19 x 9
  • Weight: 26 lbs (12 kg)

Place acceleration, automatically controlled

  • Ensures specimen integrity through automatic, microprocessor-controlled, optional acceleration
  • Paced acceleration is “Always On", eliminating operator bias in assessing cell fragility
  • Accommodates fragile cells requiring delicate handling
  • Speed adjusts from 500 to 2,500 rpm in 10-rpm increments
  • Programmable times range from 1 to 60 minutes in 1 minute increments

Digital controls

  • Speed and time settings are retained in memory with a battery backup
  • Streamlined touch pad and 3 digital displays control and monitor all functions
  • Easy to use, easy to train

Enhanced Safety Features

  • Sealable rotor housing with locking lid reduces aerosol exposure
  • Transportable housing protects operator while loading or unloading specimens
  • Rotor housing monitor system alerts operator when rotor is out of balance
  • Autoclavable rotor housing allows for safe and easy sterilization


  • Manufactured with the same quality care as all other Tissue-Tek® instruments
  • Enjoy years of trouble-free operation with virtually no maintenance required

Efficiently silent

  • Even at maximum speed, the Cyto-Tek runs smoothly and quietly

Superior clinical performance

  • A consistently high rate of cellular recovery is extremely important for accurate morphological evaluation of cerebrospinal fluid
  • Well-defined rectangular target area for optimal results
  • Better preservation of cellular structure
  • With a G force of up to 735, the Cyto-Tek can handle low molecular weight organisms such as microbacteria and viruses
  • Operates on 115 VAC, 60 Hz
