Abstract

Loading test tubes in opposite holes and adding the dummy tube are far from being the only ways to balance the centrifuge rotors. The balance can be sought with higher-order symmetrical configurations of tubes, which offer operational advantages, particularly in dealing with tubes of unequal mass. Since higher-order symmetrical configurations are a bit complicated, centrifugeR was introduced as a tool to assist centrifuge operators in the adoption of this non-trivial approach.
