Using the Centrifuge
- Point your fingers in the direction of the centrifuge's spin. In
this photo the centrifuge is spinning counterclockwise. If something goes wrong, this can
keep your fingers from being broken or worse!
- Use only light pressure to stop the spinning. A sudden stop can
shake up the precipitate.
