Centrifuge with DNA samples. Technician loading a centrifuge machine with centrifuge tubes containing DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). A centrifuge spins samples very fast causing suspended solid matter to separate from the liquid. After the DNA is centrifuged, it will be used in cytogenetic research, which usually involves looking at chromosomes for abnormalities. Chromosomes contain genes, which are lengths of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) that control specific functions in an organism.
