Main Question or Discussion Point

I was wondering what are the parameters of best centrifuges that can be built today, i.e. the greatest angular velocity*radius. I can see there are separation centrifuges available that do 6500 rpm with chamber diameter of 28cm.

Is it possible to improve on this ?

Thanks,
M

Search for "ultracentrifuge", which can do a million g's for a table top machine (so says wikipedia, not sure what the current state of the art is).
