Can I use a clinical centrifuge for the S.N.A.P. midiprep and midiprep systems?

Answer

No, we know of no clinical centrifuges that can reach 5,000 x g. Most clinical centrifuges have a maximum in the range of 3,000 to 4,000 x g. A high-speed swinging bucket rotor is therefore required for these systems. Often researchers will attempt to compensate for lower g force by increasing centrifugation time; however, this will not work.

Product FAQ

I only have fixed-angle centrifuges in the lab. Will this work with the PrimeFlow RNA Assay?

Answer

The use of a fixed-angle centrifuge may result in cell loss and is not recommended. If a fixed-angle centrifuge must be used, care should be taken during aspiration to avoid disturbing the cell pellet.
