What Is A Centrifuge Tube And What Is It Used For?
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.
