Centrifugation is used for separating components of a mixture in which the solid particles in a liquid are so small that cannot be separated by filtration process.

Principle : Denser particles are forced to the bottom and the lighter particles stay at the top when spun rapidly.


1. Used in diagnostic laboratories for blood and urine tests.

2. Used in dairies and home to separate the butter from the cream.
