Thermo Scientific SL 16R 75004030

This machine has now been replaced by the Sorvall ST1R Plus

The Thermo Scientific SL 16 and SL 16R are routine centrifuge models each with a 1.6L capacity (4 x 400ml). These centrifuges provide industry-leading capacity and ergonomics at an exceptional value for everyday sample preparation, including clinical protocols, cell culture applications, microplate processing and a variety of separation needs.

  • Unparalleled productivity and throughput: Process from 4 to 40 x 50 ml conical tubes or from 32 to 196 blood tubes with our extensive selection of biocontainment rotor solutions, all requiring minimum bench space.

  • Exceptional ergonomics: With our patented innovations, achieve safe, simple and comfortable daily operation at a working height of only 31 cm/ 12.4 in.


Auto-Lock® III Rotor System

Secure locking system delivers:

  • Installation and exchange of rotors with just the push of a button for quick switch between applications

  • Easy chamber access enables cleaning convenience, reducing contamination risk and leading to improved research and a healthier working environment

ClickSeal® Bucket Sealing System

Innovative biocontainment solution provides:

  • Simple operation eliminating screw caps and complicated clips

  • Glove-friendly, one-handed open/close capability

  • Biocontainment certification by CAMR* in Porton Down, UK

  • Polyetherimide (PEI) sealing covers with high chemical resistance and excellent thermal properties

SMARTSpin® Technology

  • Advanced rotor management system optimizes acceleration, braking and residual load imbalance for each rotor and bucket option, maximizing safety and improving separation particularly in pelleting applications

Motorized Lid Latch

  • One finger downward motion for easiest closing and locking – even on tall benches

  • Optional automatic lid opening at end of run

Compact, Comfortable Design

  • Exceptional capability in compact dimensions maximizes workspace

  • Ergonomic height and curved design ensure comfortable loading and unloading of samples and cleaning of the unit

Industry-Leading Energy Efficiency

  • Up to 40% energy consumption savings* on industry standard protocols, such as standard blood separation or conical tubes processing

  • Extended tubes capacity significantly reduces the number of runs in high throughput labs

  • Power saving option optimizes energy usage
