Andreas Hettich GmbH & Co. KG

Hettich is known throughout the world as a manufacturer of high-quality centrifuges. Indeed, our centrifuges are used beyond the globe in the International Space Station. Most of our centrifuges, however, are used in medical laboratories, research institutes and in industrial labs. Laboratory personnel value Hettich equipment because of its long service life, good design and ergonomics. Our centrifuges have been proven in use for more than 100 years. Hettich is different: We make everything ourselves. We carry out our own research and development, design our equipment, make prototypes, tools, rotors, casings and manufacture the centrifuges and accessories in Tuttlingen. Our personnel constantly develop innovative special solutions for our customers. There are currently almost 20 models in our centrifuge range, with numerous variants, from the small manual centrifuge through to high-performance floor-standing models for large laboratories.
