In laboratories, centrifuges are used to separate fluids or liquids based on density. Centrifuges are frequently used in research and clinical laboratories to isolate cells, organelles, viruses, proteins, and nucleic acids.


How a Centrifuge Works

The term “centrifugation” refers to the application of a force that pulls spinning objects outward. It is used to separate suspended particles in a liquid based on particle size and density, rotor speed, and medium viscosity.


Gravitational force causes particles with a higher density than the solvent to sink, while particles with a lower density float to the top of a solution. Centrifugation separates particles in a solution by taking advantage of even minor differences in density.


As the rotor rotates around a central axis, a centrifugal force acts to push particles away from the axis of rotation. The particles will settle if the centrifugal force exceeds theĀ  frictional force created by Read More
