Centrifuges are used in almost every field of science and chemistry. They are a fundamental and important element in any laboratory. Their main function is to separate sample solutions according to their weight and other factors. Nowadays, centrifuges are far more than just a motor spinning around. Centrifuges are available in different sizes, speed and configuration. Centrifuges apply centrifugal force to separate suspended particles from a liquid or to separate liquids of different densities.
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.
Microhematocrit centrifuge parts and uses
This low speed tabletop centrifuge’s max RCF is 13500g and its maximum speed is 12000rpm. About the control system, this YR134-2model runs with a microcomputer control, a DC brushless motor, with a stable operation feature, it makes minimum noise and it has a high-speed accuracy. This refrigerated centrifuge works with French Tecumseh Compressor Unit, R404a. This means that this model meets up the environmental standards.
