1. DLAB centrifuge rotor is of either plastic or aluminum alloy construction. Are these two kinds of rotors considerably resistant to corrosion? Will the rotor be damaged if corrosive samples being centrifuged spill?
Answer: Any brands of plastic rotors themselves are not corrosion-resistant and aluminum alloy rotors are considerably corrosion-resistant, but cannot directly contact with strong acids and alkalis. Conventional biological applications will be problem free. But in case of chemical applications, corrosive samples, if spilled, will not immediately damage the rotors but will affect their service life. It is suggested to clear any spill immediately.
2. How to sterilize DLAB centrifuge rotors?
Answer: plastic rotors: Neutral cleaning agents may be used for cleaning and wiping in case of sample leakage, but ultraviolet sterilization is not recommended, as it will make the materials become brittle and shorten the service life.
Aluminum alloy rotors: such rotors can withstand high-temperature and high-pressure sterilization at 121℃ without limits on the sterilization frequency.
3. What are the pros and cons of the palm centrifuge D1008 series that can stop once opened?
Answer: Pros: Quick ending of the rotor operation.
Cons: Quick operation ending might cause the samples in both ends of the PCR tube to be mixed up again and the non-perpendicularity between the direction of tube and rotation direction can be relieved by turning off the machine’s switch. When the cover is opened, the braking resistance stops. When the power supply is turned OFF, the braking resistance does not work and braking relies upon inertia, causing minimal impact on the samples.
4. Which factors are associated with the centrifugal force of the centrifuge?
Answer: Centrifugal force calculation formula F=mω^2r=mv^2/r. It is affected by factors like rotor angle, rotor radius and rotation speed.
