Nanoparticles can have very unusual physical and chemical properties due to their extremely small size. Practical applications for these properties range from the mundane, such as surfaces that shed water and dirt (‘Lotus effect’), to the exotic, such as special functions in medical, optical or microprocessor technology. Centrifuges are used for both the analysis and the production of small quantities of nanoparticles. The Sigma 3-30KS laboratory centrifuge occupies a unique position in this regard – its relative centrifugal force of more than 65,000 x g makes it a highly versatile tool for many applications below the ultracentrifuge level.
