The Do-It-Yourself-Dremel-Centrifuge, DremelFuge, now nearly meets the capabilities of the best centrifuges!  As previously posted for DIYbio (in “Cathal has designed a simple centrifuge using open source hardware technology, and you can order one yourself!“), the DremelFuge is an adapter which turns a Dremel rotary-tool into a lab-quality centrifuge capable of use in various bioprotocols.

As Cathal states on the DIYbio mailing list:

After a design revision which is now “official” and for sale on Shapeways, the Dremelfuge can hold tubes securely, with liquid load, up to the full speed of a Dremel 300. At a top speed of 33,000 RPM, this means the tubes experience about 52,000RCF (g).
