Trends in Centrifuge Use
May 2018 - Vol. 7 No. 4 - Page #8

The use of centrifuge technology is critical in the clinical laboratory setting for the separation of liquid and solid components. In laboratories performing biochemical analyses on body fluids, centrifuges are routinely used to separate blood cells from serum/plasma, to separate sediment from urine, to measure the volume fraction of erythrocytes in blood (the hematocrit), and to separate bound from free components in protein binding and immunoprocedures. In addition, centrifugation is used for separation of lipoproteins in reference procedures for their measurement, separation of cellular components, and separation of DNA fragments.
