Ultracentrifuges: Spinning Up Discovery

Scientists employ centrifugal force to drive biological research and develop therapies.

First invented to separate cream from milk in the mid-19 century, centrifuges have evolved as a vital piece of laboratory equipment for spinning down cells and isolating biological particles. The high speed of ultracentrifugation extends biological research limits to the subcellular level, enabling scientists to make advanced discoveries.  

Download this article from Eppendorf to learn how scientists apply different ultracentrifugation methods to study subcellular structures, diagnose diseases, and develop gene therapies.
