How many mL is a centrifuge tube?

Centrifuge tubes can be safely centrifuged to approximately 3,200 × g (50 mL size) and 3,500 × g (15 mL size) depending on the specific gravity of the solution being centrifuged and the type of rotor.

Can you centrifuge test tubes?

Test tubes are open at the top and closed at the bottom. They hold and store samples or cultures. Centrifuge tubes hold samples during laboratory centrifugation processes that separate liquids from solids or components within mixtures. Test tubes are open at the top and closed at the bottom.

What are centrifuge test tubes called?

centrifuge tips
Centrifuge tubes, also called centrifuge tips, are placed within the centrifuge and spun at very high velocity for a set amount of time.

How do you store test tubes in a lab?

Test tube holders are an easy way to organize test tubes and prevent the test tubes from falling and breaking. These containers also provide a safe way for you to store test tubes, especially when they are being used for on going experiments.

How do you handle a centrifuge?

Always operate your centrifuge on a smooth level surface with firm footing. Always balance the tubes in your rotor. Unbalanced tubes moving at high speeds can damage the unit, cause tubes to potentially break and/or cause the centrifuge to wobble or “walk” on working surfaces, leading to product failure.
