Centrifuges are used to increase the sedimentation rate of particles by using centrifugal forces, which are forces that are greater than gravity. Centrifuges consist of several different parts to include a rotor, motor, imbalance detector, tachometer, safety lid and a braking system. Improper centrifuge care can lead to damage of critical centrifuge parts, resulting in malfunctioning.
