  • Applications

    • DNA, RNA, and Protein Extraction: Microcentrifuges are used to separate DNA, RNA, and proteins from various biological samples. After lysis of cells or tissues, centrifugation at high speeds separates the soluble components (DNA, RNA, or proteins) from insoluble components like cell debris.
    • PCR Preparation: Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a common molecular biology technique used to amplify DNA sequences. Microcentrifuges are essential for preparing PCR reactions by quickly spinning down reagents such as primers, nucleotides, and enzymes to the bottom of the tubes.
    • Cell Pelleting: In cell biology, microcentrifuges are used to pellet cells from suspension. After culturing cells, centrifugation helps to collect cells at the bottom of the tube, facilitating subsequent steps such as media exchange, cell washing, or cell counting.
    • Immunoprecipitation (IP) Assays: Immunoprecipitation is a technique used to isolate specific proteins from a complex mixture using antibodies. Microcentrifuges help in separating the precipitated proteins from the rest of the solution, aiding in downstream analysis.
    • Enzyme Kinetics Studies: Microcentrifuges are used in enzyme kinetics studies to separate reaction mixtures from substrate or product. By centrifuging samples at specific time intervals, researchers can monitor changes in enzyme activity over time.
    • Exosome Isolation: Exosomes are small extracellular vesicles secreted by cells. Microcentrifuges are used in various protocols for exosome isolation from cell culture supernatants or biological fluids such as blood or urine.
    • Nucleic Acid Purification: Microcentrifuges are commonly used in nucleic acid purification procedures such as plasmid DNA extraction, RNA isolation, or genomic DNA extraction. Centrifugation helps to separate nucleic acids from contaminants or other biomolecules.
    • Protein Crystallization: In structural biology, proteins are often crystallized for X-ray crystallography studies. Microcentrifuges aid in removing aggregates or debris from protein samples before setting up crystallization experiments.
    • Sample Concentration: Microcentrifuges are used to concentrate dilute samples by spinning them at high speeds. This is particularly useful in concentrating DNA, RNA, proteins, or small molecules for subsequent analysis.
    • Microbial Cell Harvesting: In microbiology, microcentrifuges are used to harvest bacterial or yeast cells from culture suspensions for further analysis, such as gene expression studies or protein purification.
