Hettich Cyto System

The Hettich Cyto-System,
for fast single layer slide preparation.

Hettich offers you the economical advantage in the application of Cytology. Our design of the familiar cytology clip rotor, allows you the opportunity to perform multiple applications in the same centrifuge. You no longer need a dedicated cyto centrifuge for a single application.

The Hettich Cyto-System fits in 2 of our most popular centrifuges (Rotofix 32A and Universal 320) for spinning cytology clips and funnels, microliter tubes, 15 mL and 50 mL conical tubes, blood tubes, urine tubes and plates. We also offer a Bio-Seal system for spinning sensitive samples, all in one centrifuge.

Optimize your lab with a quick rotor exchange to spin round bottom, conical/ skirted or other flat bottom tubes up to 100 mL, all on one centrifuge.

Slide preparation is the optimal way of viewing cells in a single layer. The Hettich Cyto-System offers a dependable method to create a mono layer of cells in one quick easy step. From 0.2 mL to 8 mL, single funnel or up to 24 sample locations per spin all in one rotor.
