What Is A Centrifuge Tube And What Is It Used For?
A centrifuge tube is a small, cylindrical container that is used to hold samples during centrifugation. Centrifugation is a process in which different substances are separated from each other based on their densities. When a sample is placed in a centrifuge and spun at high speeds, the heavier components will settle to the bottom of the tube while the lighter components will float to the top.
Microcentrifuge tubes are similar to regular centrifuge tubes, but they are smaller in size. They are typically used for processing smaller amounts of samples.
Centrifuge tubes can be made from a variety of materials, including glass, plastic, and metal. Glass and plastic tubes are less expensive but can break more easily than metal tubes. Metal tubes are more expensive but are more durable and less likely to break.
Most centrifuge tubes have a screw-on or flip-cap lid that seals the tube and prevents sample loss during centrifugation. Most Kashi Scienticic centrifuge tubes also have a frosted area on the side of the tube that can be written on with a pencil or pend, which is helpful for labeling samples.
Centrifuge tubes are an essential piece for lab workflow and are used in a variety of settings, including hospitals, research laboratories, and universities.
