German term or phrase: Festwinkelrotor
I am having trouble with the term "Festwinkelrotor" in a dissertation on "the expression of antibody C-DNA in Chinese hamster ovary cells"

"Zentrifugation 4° C, 16-100 Stunden, 242000 g (Festwinkelrotor VAC 50 von Beckman, 50000 rpm)"

Could it be "fixed angle rotor"?

Many thanks for your assistance

fixed angle rotor
Explanation:
I think you may be right. Langenscheidt translates 'Festwinkelfunktion' as angle lock.

"These rugged Beckman Coulter rotors are constructed from heavy-duty aluminum, and are engineered to provide quiet, dependable service. The Allegra 21 series rotors accommodate tubes and bottles from 1.5 to 180ml or up to 6 microplates. Rotors can be autoclaved or chemically sterilized. Fixed angle rotors run at higher speeds for small volumes; horizontal rotors process large volumes at slower speeds.
