English term or phrase: spin tube
Dit komt voor in een document (klinisch onderzoek/laboratorium) over de afname en onderzoek van bloedmonsters. Hierin komt de volgende zin voor:

Transfer plasma with a pipette in a single 'spin tube' and centrifuge again at room temperature for 10 min at 2000 g.

Ik vermoed dat hier een 'microcentrifugeerbuisje' bedoeld wordt, maar ben niet zeker. Hulp is zeer welkom!

Explanation:
The text refers perhaps to single-spin and double-spin technology for harvesting red blood cells. With a double-spin centrifuge method, after you have spun once (usually the collection tube), you need to transfer layer(s) to a new tube for another spin: this is probably the single-spin tube. I don't think it is necessarily a microtube.
Ik zou het daarom vertalen met: ..... in een nieuwe reageerbuis overbrengen....
