Beckman-Coulter Avanti J-E Centrifuges

For access or consultation: Dr. Kim DeWeerd 591-8831 or kdeweerd@albany.edu

The Molecular Core Facility has two Avanti J-E Centrifuges.

Purpose:
Centrifugation is a process where samples are spun at very high speeds to create gravitational forces (g force) great enough to precipitate cells, organelles and insoluble components in a mixture.

Specific Description:
These floor model centrifuges are used for medium speed centrifugation. Volumes from less than 10 milliliters up to 3 liters can be prepared in these centrifuges depending on the rotor used.
