Initially, for my experiments, I used a 3D printed centrifuge holder attach to an electric drill but realized that it was too slow to efficiently vortex the gelatin slurry (especially over 5% v/w) it also risking overheating the motor of the drill.
Therefore, I developed a new DIY centrifuge motor.

The machine is using a 12v rotation motor attached to wood construction that I cut out in the lab with our CNC machine.
The electric motor is simply connected to a high-voltage power supply, for future development, it would be good to install a separate potentiometer and a power adapter so that I could plug the machine straight into the wall.
