I would also want to see what happens to that thin acrylic cover when a fully laden tube ejects from the rotor at full speed. High speed centrifuges are explosion-prone devices, and need to be tested as such. Flying shards of acrylic are no fun...

The typical recommendation for using the dremelfuge are to hold it inside a metal cooking pot - at least that will give you some serious protection.

Thanks Jenny! Typically for DNA work centrifuge speeds need to be approx. 13000rpm/18000xg
