Methods and Precautions of Microcentrifuge Tube Use

Microcentrifuge tubes are laboratory consumables, a type of small centrifuge tube also known as EP tubes. They are used in conjunction with microcentrifuges for the separation of trace reagents, providing a new tool for micro-operations in molecular biology experiments. Microcentrifuge tubes are common laboratory consumables and are tubular sample containers that can come with sealing caps or press caps. The microcentrifuge tube use is primarily with centrifuges. They utilize centrifugation technology to generate strong centrifugal forces through high-speed rotation, causing suspended particles in the rotating sample to settle or float, thereby achieving the concentration or separation of certain particles from others.

The methods of microcentrifuge tube use are crucial for laboratory personnel. Microcentrifuge tubes are not only fundamental tools for experiments but also key to ensuring the accuracy of experimental results. Therefore, mastering the operation techniques and methods of microcentrifuge tubes in every experiment can not only improve experimental efficiency but also ensure the authenticity and reliability of scientific research outcomes.

Methods of Microcentrifuge Tube Use

  • Cleaning and drying: Since graduated centrifuge tubes are used for volumetric measurements, they must be cleaned and dried before use.

  • Correct observation of the meniscus: When reading values, the meniscus must be observed correctly; otherwise, errors will be introduced.

  • Matching quantity with the centrifuge model: When using centrifuge tubes, the quantity should match the model of the centrifuge. For example, when using a centrifuge with two tube holders for a single test, the other tube holder should be filled with the same volume of liquid to maintain balance.

  • Coordinating centrifuge tubes with centrifuge holders: Tubes should not be too long, as they may break during rotation. Nor should they be too short, as short tubes can be unstable and prone to breaking when rotating in the air. The tube's round opening should be larger than the inner diameter of the holder.

  • Natural stopping: After layering and separating in the centrifuge holder, the rotation should stop naturally. Do not force a stop using external force.

Precautions for using microcentrifuge tubes

  • Single-use: Do not use a single tube multiple times. Pay attention to sample evaporation and potential leakage of radioactive or highly corrosive samples.

  • Sealed storage: During storage, seal the centrifuge tubes to prevent sample leakage.

  • Avoid deformation: Prevent deformation during the period of microcentrifuge tube use.

  • Clean the inner cavity and rotor: Do not place any substances on the centrifuge lid. Be sure to clean the inner cavity and rotor after each use.
