Ultrafuges pose the greatest risk of damage of any of our centrifuges. This is because they routinely the mass of a 1kg rotor at these speeds is enormous so great care should be take when using them. As for the superspeed centrifuge, training must be sought from the MBB Equipment Technician before use by anyone.
