*1:For commercially available tubes, some of them may not withstand the centrifugation at the maximum rotational speed. Conducting a preliminary experiment is highly recommended before the centrifugation with the actual sample. The preliminary experiment means to centrifuge the tube filled with water at the maximum rotational speed and check if there is any abnormality on the tube.

*2:The serial No. of the rotor which 15TA Adapter (C) can be used with is 100 or later. On-site rotor modification (for a fee) is required if the serial No. of the rotor is 99 or before.

※When using commercially available tubes and/or bottles, perform centrifugations under the allowable speed or allowable RCF specified by their manufacturer. Otherwise, the tubes and/or bottles may be damaged during centrifugations.
