Precautions while using Centrifuge
Proper Use of Centrifuges
Ensure that the centrifuge tubes are properly balanced and that the speed and tube length are in accordance with the tube and the centrifuge manufacturer s recommendations. Do not use tubes that are not properly sized for the rotor. If using a swinging bucket rotor, ensure that the tubes are placed in accordance with the manufacturer s instructions; long tubes (e.g., greater than 100 mm) placed in the corner tube holders closest to the rotor shaft may break when the rotor buckets swing out.
