How to convert g into rpm?



The relationship between revolutions per minute (RPM) and relative centrifugal force (xg) is:
g = (1.118 × 10-5) R S2
where g is the relative centrifugal force, R is the radius of the rotor in centimeters, and S is the speed of the centrifuge in
revolutions per minute.

You can use this for any centrifuge, just measure the radius of the rotor from the center to outer edge.

Are centrifugation at 10000xg (?rpm) and ice incubation essential in colorimetric protease assay of caspase-3?

Or there are some modification as eliminate ice step.
