Blood Bag centrifuge is available as large volume floor-standing model or space – saving under bench model. Both centrifuges are provided with refrigerated systems to keep your blood bags cool during centrifugation.
Blood bag centrifuge may hold up to 4-750 ml blood bags for processing. Rotor buckets have oval shape to easily fit blood bags for centrifuging. Rotor buckets have optional adapters that blood bags may be inserted into before inserting into centrifuge rotor heads. Adapters allow the technician to easily load the centrifuge faster. Faster loading of centrifuge reduces centrifuge down time and efficiently maintains refrigerated temperature of blood bag centrifuge. Processing may include centrifuging triple bags with additive and plasma option or whole blood bags.
Centrifuges may also be used for removing preservatives or leuko filtered white cells. Often technicians use 2 of these centrifuges simultaneously. While one centrifuge is spinning the technologist removes the blood out of the other centrifuge that has stopped for processing. Processing centrifuged whole blood requires removing the plasma using a spring loaded device that pushes the plasma from the top of the blood bag. Blood tube sealers separate connected bag tubing.
In additional to the multi functional swing out rotor, high-speed fixed angle rotors with a maximum capacity of 6 x 250 ml or 4 x 500 ml are also available! This enables a fast and efficient separation of samples in high-throughput laboratories.
