The BD/Clay Adams Micro-Hematocrit II Centrifuge is designed to obtain quantitative micro-hematocrits (MCHT) of whole blood specimens. The BD/Clay Adams Micro-Hematocrit II Centrifuge requires a seperate measuring device to read hematocrits of centrifuged specimens.
Micro methods for the determination of hematocrits have been used widely in clinical laboratories for many years. The results of micro-hematocrit determinations are recognized as being fully equivalent to the results of macro determinations. The more commonly used micro methods require approximately 66 cu.mm (.065 ml) of blood and only about 5 minutes or less of centrifugation, compared to the macro method of Wintrobe (1), which requires at least 1 ml of blood and up to 30 minutes of centrifugation.
