Centrifugation requires a series of choices critical to safety.
• Which centrifuge?
• Which rotor?
• Which tubes and adapters?
• What speed and for how long?
• What level of containment?
This video series provides guidance and instruction on how to control hazards associated with protocols and practices used in the modern biology laboratory. The series will make laboratory personnel aware of the intrinsic hazards associated with biomedical research and provide instruction in safe techniques that will enable workers to protect themselves from these hazards. The information will introduce new staff to good laboratory practices and provide meaningful technical review in safety for the more experienced laboratory worker.
