Jos got a ? about measuring the radius on my centrifuge

Postby lotsofponies » Thu Apr 04, 2013 10:55 pm

Want to play with my centrifuge, had it for a couple of years and haven't used it yet, want to experiment. Where do I measure? Of course from the center but do I measure to the outside of the top of the tube holder or do I hold the tube holder out like it is spinning and measure the bottom? For some reason it seems to make sense to measure the bottom of the tube holder?

You measure to the center of the sample being centrifuged. This will vary depending upon if you have a swinging bucket or fixed rotor. With the former (swinging bucket) one would extend the centrifuge tube out straight out to the position it would be in when being spun and measure to the projected center of the sample - e.g. if you were to fill to the 40 ml mark, you would measure to the 20 ml mark; if the latter (fixed) the same applies, but it will take a little more finagling to determine exactly where the center is.
