Centrifugation involves the separation of liquid-liquid and solid-liquid mixtures, based on the principle of sedimentation of accelerated gravitational force accomplished by a rapid rotation. Laboratory centrifuges are generally used in the separation of cells, viruses, proteins, subcellular organelles, and nucleic acids in research and other areas. The most commonly used laboratory centrifuges are benchtop centrifuges, floor-standing centrifuges, microcentrifuges, specialty centrifuges, and ultracentrifuges. The researchers need centrifuge in various applications such as specimen preparation, new molecule development in drug discovery, and foreign particles analysis.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Laboratory Centrifuges market to grow at a CAGR of 5.16 percent over the period 2013-2018.
