A centrifuge is a device that uses centrifugal force to separate various components of a fluid. This is achieved by spinning the fluid at high speed within a container, thereby separating fluids of different densities (e.g. cream from milk) or liquids from solids.

Types of centrifuges:

-bench top / floor top / industrial tubular centrifuge

-refrigerated / non refrigerated

-fixed angle rotor / swing angle rotor
