The Hettich 5-point Quality Inspection

Hettich Instruments continues in the effort for consistent product quality and safety by individually testing every unit. Our “5-point quality inspection” ensures all units are delivered safely and accurately. The “5-point quality inspection” consists of an order qualification, a visual inspection, a functionality test, a parts & accessory check and a packaging check.

Hettich TaqMan® real-time PCR array centrifuge

Hettich offers an Applied Biosystems® approved TaqMan® Custom Array card-holder specifically designed for the application. The 384-well micro fluidic card fits effortlessly in the holder for accurate results. In addition, Hettich offers a variety of centrifugation options for PCR/DNA/RNA applications.

Hettich test-pad holding unit for the water retention value in pulp and paper

The method used to determine the water retention value (WRV) has been standardized and is described in the international standard ISO 23714:2007. Whereas in the past the sample holders were specially manufactured and therefore expensive, or had to be fabricated for their intended use, Hettich now offers a test-pad holding unit of type A.1 as given in ISO 23714:2007 as standard centrifuge accessories.
