The CARR Centritech brand is a global leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of liquid/solid centrifugal separation systems. CARR Centritech offers innovative and enabling solutions in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, including human and animal vaccines and therapeutic medicines, nutraceuticals, and specialty chemicals including ink jet ink, cosmetic additives and controlled-release drug delivery systems.
The CARR Powerfuge® and Viafuge® Separation Systems, with separating forces up 20,000 x G, are offered with automatic CIP and SIP to allow for a complete aseptic processing. Optional hazardous duty (Class 1, Div 1) configurations are available.
The CARR UniFuge® Separation System, a first of its kind, meets a significant unmet manufacturing need in the biotech industry as a single-use process centrifuge that eliminates the need for expensive cleaning and sterilization and reduces the possibility of contamination. The UniFuge enables the biopharmaceutical industry to produce critical medicines faster and for significantly less cost.
The Centritech Separation System is the first single-use centrifuge developed for perfusion cell culture processes and cell banking applications, including the emerging stem cell market.
CARR Centritech was founded in 1993 by Robert “Bret” Carr and his father Bob Carr in Medfield, MA as CARR Separations. Together, they introduced the Powerfuge Separation System, the first high speed, solid bowl centrifuge with automatic solids discharge and True-clean® CIP capabilities. Through the 1990’s, CARR Separation established itself as an industry innovator and a world class supplier of liquid-solid separation to the Life Sciences and Specialty Chemical markets.
After a period of explosive growth, in 2000, CARR Separations was acquired by Kendro Laboratories Products LLC. The Powerfuge and Viafuge Separation Systems were combined with Centritech Separation Systems to form the Kendro Bioprocess division. The Centritech Separation System, the first single-use centrifuge developed for cell culture, was developed in Sweden.
In 2004, Pneumatic Scale Angelus acquired CARR Centritech Separation Systems, relocating all functions to Clearwater, Florida. In 2009 PSA introduced the CARR UniFuge® Single-use Separation System, the first single-use centrifugal separation system developed for the emerging single-use cell culture market.
