The Tissue Core Facility has one refrigerated clinical centrifuge (5810R) and one clinical centrifuge without refrigeration (5810).

Clinical centrifuges are used for a variety of separations, but primarily to pellet cells from medium using relatively low g forces (3220 x g). Another common use is to spin membrane devices that separate macromolecules based on size.

Specific Description:
These centrifuges are equipped with swinging bucket holders that accommodate 4 rectangular shaped holders. The rectangular shaped holders can be used to spin multi-well plates, 15 ml culture tubes or 50 ml culture tubes. Each rectangular holder can support three 50 ml tubes, nine 15 ml tubes or one multi-well plate.
