The Hematocrit Centrifuge 200 is a compact and efficient centrifuge for the determination of the percentage by volume of erythrocytes in blood. It is furthermore used to derive plasma for the photometric determination of the bilirubin content of the blood of neonates.

This high-performance centrifuge separates samples in just minutes. With its maximum centrifugal force of 16,060 x g it takes less than 7 minutes for the red blood cells to attain their maximum packing density and yield cell-free plasma for further analysis.

Up to 24 capillary tubes can be centrifuged in one run. Each capillary tube has its own chamber thanks to the segmented rotor. The advantage of this is that if one of them breaks then no others will break in a chain reaction. The glass splinters and blood from the broken capillary tube are captured in a cushion on the outer edge of the segment. This also serves as a support for the capillary tubes, is easy to clean and can be replaced.

The Hematocrit values can be read off after sedimentation is complete using the rotor lid which also serves for evaluation. The capillary tubes do not have to be removed for this purpose. This saves time and offers additional safety.

Operator Comfort:
The Hematocrit 200 offers various features to make operation easier, such as:
• Ergonomic control panel: Both centrifugation time and speed can be quickly and easily set
• The rpm and remaining centrifugation time are displayed whilst the centrifuge is running

The Hematocrit 200 contributes to safety in the workplace. It has safety features which include the following:
• Lid locking
• A mechanism to prevent the lid from falling
• Emergency lid release upon power failure
• Deep centrifugation chamber made of metal
• Imbalance switch-off

This compact centrifuge has an appealing design and is finished to a very high standard. It has high-quality components such as:
• Rugged metal casing
• Inner lid of metal
• Deep metal chamber to safely accommodate the rotor

The advantages of the Hematocrit 200 are as follows:
• Rapid results thanks to high centrifugal acceleration (maximum of 16,060 x g)
• 24 capillary tubes can be centrifuged in a single run
• Reliable, safe centrifugation through unique rotor design
• Simple Hematocrit determination: the Hematocrit values can be easily read in the rotor, saving time
• In addition to the 24-place rotor for standard capillary tubes there is also a 20-place plate rotor available for quantitative Buffy Coat analysis. Both rotors are supplied with lids.

Fields of Application:
The centrifuge can be used for numerous test procedures, such as:
• Hematology: Hematocrit determination for diagnostic purposes
• Sports medicine: Hematocrit determination in doping tests
• Neonatal medicine: Sample preparation for photometric bilirubin determination in the blood of neonates
