Update: The original material, "Grey Robust" (ABS) is no longer available. Basic testing shows that the "Strong and Flexible" material works, but appears less stable (more vibration in use). It is back on sale, but the usual cautions apply, and I accept no responsibility for any negative consequences resulting from the use of Dremelfuge(s).

This is the Drill/Machine edition of Dremelfuge. It will not work with a Dremel or other rotary tool, as it requires a chuck to grip the axle.

DremelFuge is a centrifuge rotor for use with a drill or rotary tool. Though demonstrated to be effective at up to 33,000RPM / 52,000g, it is sold as an ornament only. Use of Dremelfuge for any practical purpose is undertaken entirely at the risk of the purchaser.
DremelFuge is detailed further here:

The new version of Dremelfuge has been tested to hold tubes with fluid loads at speeds of up to 33,000RPM, which delivers 52,000g to a tube as measured halfway along its length (the standard method). For scale, most lab microcentrifuges will not deliver more than 20,000g, and few protocols require more than 10,000g.

To clarify a few things: This version of Dremelfuge is not actually designed or appropriate for Dremels. rather, this version is for drills or presses that have a chuck-fitting. If you want to use a Dremel with your rotor, buy a "Recessed Edition" instead, and fit the cutting-disc holder from the Dremel/rotary tool to the Dremelfuge. Also, both versions of Dremelfuge have been updated properly, and should now boast superior tolerances to the original versions. I have not yet fully tested the new Dremelfuges to see whether tubes can be spun any faster than with the originals.. more on this when I receive mine. Finally, these are certainly fully functional rotors for centrifugation, but I can't suggest using them for this purpose for safety reasons. You may do so at your own risk, but be sure to take precautions.
