The Collection Site Series of centrifuges is well suited for sample collection points, urgent care, and physician offices, the Model 614B and 642E have been adopted by many reference labs and have found their way into over 200,000 additional locations worldwide. If you’re looking for affordability, simplicity, and repeatability, the Collection Site Series is for you.
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.
