StatSpin Consumables and Accessories
StatSpin 40mm Capillary Tubes
StatSpin 40mm capillary tubes are used for the determination of Haematocrit (Packed Cell Volume – PCV) tests. These capillary tubes are manufactured in high-quality glass and are available either in plain or pre-coated with heparin. The fill volume for these 40mm tubes is 9.4μl.
Capillaries are commonly used to extract small blood samples directly from the vein by using a Surgicutt lancet. Our centrifuge consumable range includes both 75mm and 40mm capillary tubes. This type of tube is not only used for Packed Cell Volume tests, but also the extremely useful function of transporting small volumes of sample to other devices, such as microscope slides for making blood smears and Petri dishes for other tests.
StatSpin Centrifuge Consumables
We also supply StatSpin sealant trays and the StatSpin reader card which is made from tough washable laminated plastic. The reader card has a sliding transparent tube holder to read 40mm capillary tubes by using the sliding per cent haematocrit scale provided on the card.
In addition, we also supply the StatSpin OvaTube for processing faecal samples. The StatSpin OvaTube is the first centrifugation method that is easy and fast without any mess. Just add the sample to the tube and mix with standard flotation fluid. Centrifuge in either a fixed angle or horizontal centrifuge, remove the tube, add a coverslip, and twist. In just a few minutes results are ready to read.
We offer both rotors for StatSpin VT centrifuge. The RT12, 2-Place Microtube Rotor and the RH12, 12-Place Microhaematocrit Rotor. These rotors are lightweight, precision fabricated and pre-balanced for reliable high-speed performance.

RT12 Microtube Rotor
The RT12 Microtube Rotor is designed to fit in the StatSpin RT12 centrifuge and will accept 2 x 2ml blood tubes at any one time. It is a precision fabricated high-speed rotor which accepts a wide variety of blood tubes from 1.5ml-2ml microcentrifuge and conical bottom.
RH12 Microhaematocrit Rotor without Reader
Designed to fit in the RT12 StatSpin Centrifuge, this rotor will hold up to 12 StatSpin 40mm capillary tubes. The rotor has a carbon-fibre retaining ring enabling it to be durable and easy to use with a transparent screw-on lid.
StatSpin OvaTube – Ova and Parasite Detection System
Centrifugal Accuracy without the Mess!
Processing faecal samples by centrifugal flotation has emerged as the new gold standard due to its improved sensitivity over traditional (gravity) flotation. Not only has centrifugation become the method of choice among veterinary parasitologists, but in addition, there are multiple published papers that indicate this methodology has a significantly higher yield of parasites than the current flotation method.
Perfect In-Clinic Solution: fast, easy, clean
The StatSpin OvaTube is the first centrifugation method that is easy and fast without any mess, with a simple coring tool to obtain a sample. Just add the sample to the tube and mix with standard flotation fluid. Centrifuge in either a fixed angle or horizontal centrifuge, remove the tube, add a coverslip, and twist. In just a few minutes results are ready to read.
