The Various Kind of Centrifuges and their Specifications
A centrifuge is one of the clinical instruments mainly used to separate the mixtures based on various parameters like shape, density, size, viscosity, rotor speed, and much more. If we concern with the centrifuge instrument that can be classified into various categories such as tabletop, micro-centrifuge, refrigerated, etc. Actually, the function of these two clinical centrifuges is the same where the capacity and also the rotation speed will differ from each other. This centrifuge instrument is commonly used in hospitals for diagnosis purposes. Mostly the clinical laboratory tests the blood and urine this instrument will be used. Also, this is used to separate the DNA and RNA which can be carried out mostly in the research laboratory. Fine, let us see some of the different types of centrifuge instruments here in this article.
This type of instrument looks compact and will not occupy more space on the workbench used to keep this during the analysis. The recently designed instruments are made with an adjustable sample holder hence any size of the sample tube can be easily accommodated. Also, the microcentrifuge is designed to analyze different kinds of samples like pelleting nucleic acid, protein, and also some aqueous samples. Mostly used for biological applications and small tubes can be applied for analysis as its name suggests.
Refrigerated Centrifuge Instrument:
One of the important laboratory instruments used to analyze biological samples. It is used to store the samples at a constant and consistent temperature. The refrigerated centrifuges are working at maximum speeds and at the same time may maintain the temperature. The range of temperature that can be set in the instruments is between minus twenty to minus forty degrees Celsius. Since the temperature is sufficiently low this can be applied to analyze the PCR, DNA, RNA, and also antibodies. The carious configured instrument can be found as a swing bucket and fixed angle.
