1.What are the main factors that influence the maximum centrifugal acceleration force?
● Use of organic solutions, temperature below 0°C, centrifuging without centrifuge adapter, etc. Conduct a trial run to determine proper conditions before any critical use begins.
● The RCF (relative centrifugal force) or G ratings for our disposable centrifuge tubes have been established at room temperature using tubes filled to nominal capacity with water and centrifuging for 30 minutes. recommended carriers, adapters, and cushions that fully support the tubes. If an angle head rotor is used or proper support is not provided, G values will be lower.
● Do not confuse speed or revolutions per minute (RPM) with relative centrifugal force (RCF). Instructions for centrifuging a sample at a given RPM and time are incomplete unless the rotor or radius is specified. Protocols should always state the time and RCF value for centrifuging a sample.
2.What are autoclaving guidelines of plastics?
To ensure successful steam sterilization of your plastic labware please adhere to the following guidelines:
PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT ALL PRODUCTS ARE AUTOCLAVABLE. Autoclave plastic consumables at 121°C and 15psi/1 atm for 15 minutes. Do not use a dry cycle, as this may cause deformation or weakening of the plastic. Allow temperature within the autoclave to return to 80°C or below before removing products.
