Carr Biosystems UFMini Single-Use Centrifuge

Single use scale-down centrifuge for process development and small batch manufacturing

The UFMini is a single-use centrifuge designed for primary clarification of mammalian cell cultures (i.e., CHO cells), and harvesting (washing & concentrating) stem cells and other types of cells for biotechnology and pharmaceutical applications. This user-friendly system is the scaled-down version of our successful UniFuge® single-use centrifuge. The UFMini is intended for use in cleanrooms, in laminar flow hoods, and on benchtops.

  • Bowl capacity: 300mL
  • Flow rate from 29-1,000 mL/min
  • Small footprint: Centrifuge Enclosure 69 cm x 56 cm x 38 cm (27” x 22” x 15”)
  • Easy to handle: Total skid weight of ~40 kg (90 lbs)
  • Gamma-irradiated single-use modules
  • Processes scalable to UniFuge® Pilot and U2k®



  • Compact Size: Small footprint is perfect for early-stage process development, ​​process characterization and small volume commercial production.
  • Confidently Scale Up: Accurately transferring operating protocols to the UniFuge® or U2k® is straightforward as you move from early-stage development to commercial manufacturing.
  • Streamline Processes: Uses a sterile single-use module that is easy to install and replace after each run.
  • Performance: Low-shear centrifugation allows for high-quality and high-recovery separation.
  • Save Time: Easily incorporated into a fully-automated workflow and significantly reduces processing time.
  • Efficiency: Software and automation minimise process upsets and errors.
  • Minimise Contamination Risks: This single-use, closed system reduces contamination risks. It provides flexibility for multi-product facilities.
  • Stop-N-Go: The UniFuge systems are designed to resume and recover from an interrupted process without product loss.
  • Cell Washing: The UniFuge systems can hold materials in the bowl for washing and buffer exchanges.
  • Reliable: Built in a state-of-the art US facility, following the highest standards of quality control.
