Be sure to load the sample holder of the rotor equally before operating the centrifuge in order to keep the rotor balanced and avoid damaging the device.
You can look up the rotation speed range for the equipped angle rotor in the data sheet linked below.

In addition to the equipment above, the sample preparation laboratory provides a supply of argon, helium, compressed air and ultrapure water. Usually small amounts of commonly used solvents and laboratory dishes are available. Additionally you can use the official proposal form to point out your special requirements, so that your local contact and the sample environmental group can prepare appropriate conditions for your experiment in time.

Mobile glove boxes are installed in both, Neutron Guide- and Experimental Hall to be used close to the instruments.
