Heraeus Pico & Fresco Microcentrifuge Series


The Thermo Scientific™ Heraeus™ Pico™ and Fresco™ 17 microcentrifuges are excellent for routine laboratory work, while the Heraeus Pico and Fresco 21 microcentrifuges are ideal for high-end research applications, reducing spin times by up to 20%.

Perform both complex and simple protocols:

  • The standard rotor runs 24 tubes in a single row with equalized g-forces for reproducibility, from 1.5 to 2.0 mL tubes to mini-preps and spin columns
  • Eliminate the need for adapters with the unique dual row rotor, which holds 18 tubes of both 1.5/2.0 mL and 0.5 mL in the same run
  • Maximize your micro-volume capacity with the new 10 x 5 mL rotor with ClickSeal biocontainment lid, separating samples at g-force up to 20,326 x g
  • Wide variety of rotors support 0.5 mL microtubes, 0.2 mL PCR tubes and hematocrit capillary tubes

Save time with fast sample processing

  • Lightweight rotors are designed to provide acceleration up to 21,100 xg in 12 seconds
  • Refrigerated versions offer cooling from room temperature to set temperature in just 9 minutes
  • Fast one-click centrifuge lid closure

Ideal for everyday laboratory use:

  • High performance engineered polymer rotors are designed for outstanding chemical resistance to minimize corrosion from aggressive reagents
  • ClickSeal biocontainment lids shorten retrieval time with one-click opening, compared to screw-on lids
  • Transparent PPSU rotor lids enable viewing for added safety and convenience
  • Quiet performance (<56 dBA ventilated and <50 dBA refrigerated) promotes a safe and reduced stress environment
  • Conforms to the latest clinical and safety standards, including 98/79/EC In Vitro Diagnostic Directive

Fits in.

  • To your space, with compact footprints
  • To your micro-volume protocols:
    • Choose from 7 optional rotors to find the ideal fit for your application
    • Two speed options, and both ventilated and refrigerated models available

Stands out.

  • Simplify operation with intuitive controls, easy-to-read displays, and fast one-click centrifuge lid closure
  • Fast acceleration and deceleration, and outstanding corrosion resistance with lightweight engineered polymer rotors
  • Ergonomic one-click rotor opening and closing, as well as transparent design for added safety with certified
  • Thermo Scientific™ ClickSeal™ biocontainment lids
  • Eliminate the need for adapters with unique dual row rotor
