Centrifuge Rotors

Rotors for the Avanti J-E High Speed Centrifuges are located on adjacent tables within both the second and the third floors.

Ultracentrifuge rotors are contained in a cabinet within room 3-269. Some tubes and bottles are available to help labs start out. These are found in the same cabinets as the rotors. If you plan to use these tubes for future experiments, however, we ask that you please buy your own or replace what you have taken.

Please ensure that the tube is appropriate for the specific rotor. This can be found in the rotor manual.
