Horizontal Centrifugation for Off-Site Analysis
Horizontal Versus Fixed-Angle Centrifugation
Fixed-angle centrifuges, although less expensive, produce gel layers that may be susceptible to rupture during transport. These damaged samples cannot be used without an additional centrifugation step; yet, the CLSI recommends against re-centrifugation due to its known negative effects on analytical results. For better gel layer formation, please consider Horizontal Centrifugation with one of the 642 Models. The 642 Models utilize patented horizontal rotor technology to reduce blood processing times by 33% while guaranteeing reproducibility, regardless of location.
Fixed-Angle Centrifugation for On-Site Analysis
The Model 614B is Drucker’s most affordable fixed-angle centrifuge. Using durable materials, along with an advanced cooling system, the 614B provides high-quality fixed-angle separations for the physician’s office or small lab.
