Frequently Asked Questions

Centrifuge tubes are used in laboratories to separate substances of different densities by spinning them at high speeds. They are essential for processes like isolating DNA, clarifying liquids, and sedimenting cells or particles.

Tubes designed for centrifuges are typically made from durable materials like polypropylene or borosilicate glass. These include graduated, plain, and specialized tubes with various closure types to withstand high rotational forces during centrifugation.

Test tubes are general-purpose lab containers, while centrifuge tubes are specifically designed to withstand the high forces of centrifugal machines for substance separation. Centrifuge tubes, which have an RCF rating, often have stronger, specialized materials and secure closures.
