PCR Tube Centrifuge

A salad spinner, two empty pipette-tip boxes, and tape can be used as an improvised PCR tube centrifuge.

Below is a video of the amalgam in action.

Tape two pipette boxes to the inside of the salad spinner. Take care to balance the whole thing with the boxes (only one is shown in the picture above).

The salad spinners are cheap, amazon has one listed for around 25 bucks.
