3 Microcentrifuges Your Lab Should Know About
Microcentrifuges, much like regular centrifuges, work by using the process of centripetal acceleration to separate substances of different densities. However, as their name suggests, microcentrifuges are more ideal for the separation of micro-volume protocols. Typically, they are used with liquid samples that are 2 ml or less at high speeds. They are important for biological applications in laboratories including the microfiltration of small samples and the pelleting of nucleic acids and proteins.
