Hematocrit Centrifuge and Micro Centrifuges. Differences

The key difference between these two appliances is based on their functions and dimensions; we have hematocrit centrifuges, it is especially used to determine volumetric proportion of erythrocytes in the blood, it is widely used in areas such as neonatal, hematology; and separate the plasma for further studies; micro centrifuges are small centrifuges, capable of centrifuging small blood samples, and separating the components of a liquid or solid sample.

Another difference, it focuses on its size and proportion, centrifuge speed, maximum RCF, speed accuracy, time settings, temperature settings and maximum capacity, and while the breakage of a hematocrit centrifuge can vary from 24 to 36, the rotating capacity of a micro centrifuge can go from 6 to 16 tubes, another marked difference is the capacity of the centrifugal tubes, in the rifuge we have 1.5 ml, 2.2 ml tubes; while in the micro we have tuvos from 0.2 ml to 0.5ml.

Uses of hematocrit centrifuge and micro centrifuges

Hematocrit centrifuge, its use is almost exclusive to calculate the amount of erythrocytes in the blood, and it is necessary for the blood bank, because it separates red blood cells from the plasma, which in itself has a lot of applications in the area of medicine, in addition to being able to contribute to other tests; this centrifuge has a rotor of 24 positions, for tubes with a maximum capacity ranging from 1.5 to 2.2 ml.

Now, micro centrifuges, they have more application areas, it’s not restricted to blood bank, or plasma tests, or hematocrits, but it’s able to separate solid and liquid components, usable in a wide variety of areas, plus some models have interchangeable rotor, of capacity from 0.2 to 0.5 ml, and we found from 6 positions to 16 positions.

Areas where hematocrit centrifuges and micro centrifuges are most commonly used

Due to its main objective, hematocrit centrifuge, we can find them in blood banks, clinics, hospitals, vets, hematology, pathologies, among other areas where it is required to know about erythrocytes in the blood and related diseases; but micro centrifuges, because of their small size and high speed, are very useful in areas like: immunology, biochemistry, pharmacology, biology, hepatology, pharmacology and toxicology.

The advantage of micro centrifuges is their ability to change the rotor, play with the different tubes, facilitating different studies in different areas such as the sedimentation of biological components and for biochemical and chemical analysis of micro-cubes, clinical chemistry, endocrinology, among others; if you want to learn more about the applications according to the centrifuge and micros types just visit us at HERE

Differences between the characteristics of hematocrit centrifuge and micro centrifuges present in the KALSTEIN camera

Hematocrit centrifuge has an LED display, easy-to-use interface, simple and convenient operations and the micro large LCD touch screen; while one owns the Speed ​ ​ and RCF real-time conversation is convenient for the operation, the micro has 9 acceleration and deceleration level files for your choice. Among other differences related to maximum speed, the centrifuge goes from 16500 r/min, the micro can find it in 10000 r/min, the maximum RCF of the centrifuge is 21 532 x g and the micro from 2000 to 5000 x g.

While the centrifuge has self-locking device overspeed security device, overspeed security device, temperature. The new micro-centrifuge electronic lock ensures safety rotation. It has excess speed security, excess temperature security device and automatic alarm device. 

Each type has different settings and specific applications, for the acquisition of these centrifuges and micro centrifuges laboratory brand KALSTEIN you can make it through our online shopping channels that are very easy and viable, in the following link: HERE reminding them that we are high-level manufacturers, with great demand worldwide buy-sell, and offer them the best specialists to provide you with the necessary advice, our Kalstein Laboratory Equipment Company.
