Centrifuge, one important process in your laboratory

The centrifugation process is one of the most critical and fundamental in any kind of laboratory. Separating samples is a common but delicate procedure and it needs to be done with the right equipment. This separation technique’s main procedure is the sedimentation principle, which happens when the centripetal acceleration makes the denser particles in a sample move outward in a radial direction and the less dense substances move to the center. A common centrifuge is an equipment in which you place an object in rotation around an axis.

Laboratory centrifuge

There are different types of centrifuges, in the case of the laboratory ones the work as a regular centrifuge. A motor drives them and this one spins liquid samples at a high speed. Of course, you can choose the model that best suits your needs and you can choose them for their size, sample capacity and working method. You should know, these laboratory centrifuges also work by the sedimentation principle. These devices spin the sample between the greater and lesser density particles. One of the things you have to be aware of when using a centrifuge is the load, because it needs to be carefully balanced.

Centrifuge machines for medical laboratory

We are offering you a wide variety of medical laboratory centrifuge. To begin with there is the Floor standing high-speed refrigerated centrifuge, which is used to collect microorganisms and cellular samples. You have multiple options to choose from, if what you need is more practicality, you can also purchase a tabletop high-speed refrigerated centrifuge. These devices have become a very functional option for your laboratory; especially it is a small working-space.

There are other kind of criteria when it comes to choosing the right centrifuge. It is not just about the size. You have to take into consideration the capacity feature, which is why we also offer high-capacity refrigerated centrifuges and ultra-capacity refrigerated centrifuges. These options are also temperature regulated ones, giving you the needed technology for testing your samples. In addition, you can find among our catalog tabletop low speed centrifuges a practical option if your lab’s needs its only for small sample spins.

Since we have a wide range variety, we introduce you with the PRP centrifuge. Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically in blood. The concentration of platelets can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual. PRP is very common in several treatments in the medical field. The way to obtain this Platelet rich plasma is by separating platelets from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during the centrifugation process. This is a high-end technology device specially designed to obtain the right sample.

Another common procedure in a biology laboratory is microhematocrit and we have the right centrifuge model for it. Microhematocrit is a very useful procedure for determining the ratio of the volume of packed red blood cells to the volume of whole blood by centrifuging a quantity of blood. Microhematocrit centrifuges are very common when it comes to diagnose blood loss, polycythemia (an elevation of the erythrocyte count to above-normal levels), anemia, bone marrow failure, leukemia, and multiple myeloma. The microhematocrit centrifuge can quickly attain to a speed of 11000rpm or more.

In addition, if what you need is a spin at the tip of your hands, you must have the mini centrifuge. This device is a very basic and essential element inside a lab. They are staple instruments when it comes to research labs that tend to use small tube volumes. Moreover, we are offering you blood washing centrifuges one of the most recent techniques in the medical field in order to maintain donated blood and to “wash it”.

No more worries about having the right centrifuge devices. We are offering you the high-end laboratory equipment you need in your company.
