How much is hematocrit centrifuge?

How much is hematocrit centrifuge?

Micro Hematocrit Centrifuge at Rs 75000/unit | Hematocrit Centrifuges | ID: 20671425712.

What is a hematocrit centrifuge used for?

The haematocrit centrifuge is intended to provide laboratory tests for haematocrit values in the fields of biochemistry, microbic immunity genetics, and blood separation.

What is the use of Microhematocrit?

Microhematocrit centrifuges are used for determination of volume fractions of erythrocytes (red blood cells) in blood and for separation of micro volumes of blood and solutions. It provides hematocrit values (HCT) for testing in biochemistry, immunity, genetics, blood separation and for general clinical tests.

What is hematocrit machine?

Evaluation. In the laboratory, your hematocrit is evaluated using a centrifuge, which is a machine that spins at a high rate to cause the contents of your blood to separate. A lab specialist will add a special anticoagulant to keep your blood from clotting.

What is high speed centrifuge?

Definition: A separation method where components of a sample are separated on the basis of their density in a centrifuge according to the centrifugal force they experience. Samples are spun at >5000 rpm.

How do you calculate hematocrit?

Using either a hematocrit reader or any ruled apparatus, measure the length of the column of the packed red cells and divide it by the length of the whole column of blood (cells and plasma), as in Figure 151.1. To obtain the hematocrit, multiply this number by 100%.

What might a low hematocrit value indicate?

A lower than normal hematocrit can indicate: An insufficient supply of healthy red blood cells (anemia) A large number of white blood cells due to long-term illness, infection or a white blood cell disorder such as leukemia or lymphoma.

Is PCV and hematocrit the same?

HCT/PCV is the percent of blood volume filled by erythrocytes and, thus, a measure of oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. Spun HCT and Spun PCV are different names for the same thing (both are derived by the same method—determined by centrifugation of anticoagulated whole blood).

What is the difference between Serofuge and centrifuge?

A Serofuge is a piece of laboratory equipment that is used in blood banking by spinning the serum from whole blood red cells. In blood banking, centrifuges should normally be run at speeds of between 3400 and 3500 RPM when they are used for red cell washing and for grading.
