Centrifugation – Basic Applications and Maintenance
Centrifuges, being capable of spinning at very high speed which is equivalent to thousands of gs could possibly pose
risks to safety when they are used inappropriately or when they are not maintained in the proper manners.
The objective of this workshop is to provide solutions to common pitfalls seen during centrifugation work catered for
different applications as well as to illustrate good laboratory practices which should be applied in your laboratories at
This workshop also provides a proper understanding of the principles of centrifugation that enable users to
achieve the best experimental results. Tips will also be incorporated to deal with problems that could commonly
arise during your routine lab works.
