Package from

Thermo, FIBERLite

and Corning!

Thermo, FIBERLite and Corning have teamed up to accelerate your sample

preparation process! The new Sorvall RC-6 Plus superspeed centrifuge from Thermo

works seamlessly with FIBERLite’s high-performance carbon fiber rotors and Corning’s

high-quality centrifuge tubes to bring you a total sample processing solution.

> High speeds and high RCFs on the Sorvall RC-6 Plus make quick work of your


> Advanced-technology carbon fiber rotors and adapters from FIBERLite let

you spin samples up to maximum speeds – without damaging tubes

> Disposable, pre-sterilized Corning ® centrifuge tubes are DNase- and RNase

free, reducing the risk of sample contamination

Be on the cutting edge...

Today’s researchers are turning more and more to disposable tubes to protect their samples from

external sources of contamination. Corning offers a full line of sterile, DNase / RNase-free tubes

that liberate researchers from time-consuming, non-productive tasks such as autoclaving, while

eliminating the need for commercial sterilization products. And because every run starts with a

fresh tube, there is no need to worry about tubes wearing out from repeated use and potentially

damaging valuable samples.

Free tubes with purchase! To get you started with this unique

high-productivity solution, Thermo will ship a FREE starter kit of Corning

centrifuge tubes when you purchase a Sorvall RC-6 Plus & FIBERLite rotor package!

Sorvall RC-6 Plus

Superspeed Centrifuge

• High Speed, High Capacity

Processing. Offering 4 liters of

capacity and processing speeds

of up to 22,000 (55,200 x g), the

RC-6 Plus enables extremely

fast processing of your samples.

• Vacuum-Free Processing.

The RC-6 Plus spins samples at

atmospheric pressure, so there

are no vacuum seals or filters

to maintain, and there is less

risk of tube or bottle leakage.

• Optimized for Safety. The

RC-6 Plus meets CE and CSA

safety standards without the

need to anchor the unit to

the floor.

• Versatile. Choose from a range

of carbon fiber rotors to meet

your RCF and sample volume



FIBERLite Rotors

• The SLC-4000 carbon fiber

rotor offers unique FIBERLite

adapters that can spin Corning

500 and 250 mL tubes up to the

maximum speed of the rotor

(12,006 x g). Adapters are also

available for Corning’s highspeed

50 mL and 15 mL

conical tubes.

• The SLC-3000 rotor

accomodates Corning 250 mL

tubes down to 15 mL conical

tubes with adapters.

• The SLC-1500 carbon fiber

rotor offers the speed

capability and adapters to

accomodate Corning’s high

speed conical tubes up to the

tube’s maximum RCF rating.

• The F13S-14x50cy can spin up

to 14 x 50 mL Corning conical

tubes at the maximum speed

for the rotor (26,727 x g) –

greatly reducing processing

time! Adapters are also

available for 15 mL Corning

conical high-speed tubes.

Corning ® Tubes

• Quality & Reliability: Corning

disposable conical centrifuge

tubes are manufactured from

high quality, ultra clear resins

to ensure the highest level of


• Corning’s 500 mL conical

tube is ideal for large volume
