Do I have to specify the acceleration of a centrifuge in revs per minute?


No, because the quantity to be measured is acceleration, which is expressed by the result of the square of the speed of angular rotation by the radius of gyration (?2 R). Revs per minute are used to specify angular speeds, not acceleration.
