Common FAQ of Centrifuges

The concept of a centrifuge was first born from an English military engineer Benjamin Robins and later put into practice in 1875 by Alexander Prandtl based on his brother’s idea of a dairy centrifuge to separate cream from milk. Since the creation, various developments have been undertaken to produce a wide range of models for different applications, contributing to the advancement of science and technology. Being a common sight in most laboratories, it is therefore imperative to understand some basic knowledge about centrifuges. We list the top 5 questions often asked by users. 1. How do I balance my samples? If you only have one sample to run, make sure to put another tube with the same volume of water in the opposite hole. Balancing by mass is recommended if the density of sample and wa ...
