Construction: Machined, anodised and silk screened aluminium.

 Multi Combination Rotor

This rotor is a further variation of the 24 place and combination rotor and it is ideal for users with a wider variety of sample types to process. The rotor takes 16 standard 75mm capillaries, and several different sizes of microtubes, to accommodate screw cap lids and both 11 and 12mm diameter microtubes.

Capacity: 16 capillary haematocrit tubes – 75mm long x 59µl at 13,000g
12 micro chemistry tubes – 1.5ml vol., 11mm dia. x 40mm L at 13,00g
4 screw cap Vacutainers or similar, 12mm dia. x up to 60mm L at 13,000g

Construction: Machined, anodised and silk screened aluminium.

 8 Place Acetal (Fixed Angle) Rotors

A durable black acetal machined rotor which takes 8 micro chemistry tubes up to 2ml volume, with numbered tube positions for routine sample identification. The rotor inclines the samples at 30 degrees and runs at 16,000 rpm giving RCF 19,000g.

Capacity: 8 micro chemistry tubes – up to 2ml volume at 8,500g

Construction: Machined black acetal.

Hawksley Microhaematocrit Tube Reader

For microhaematocrit measurement

This Microhaematocrit Tube Reader is designed to give the client years of service, it is precision printed with an intuitive reader scale which will give fast, easy and accurate haematocrit measurements.

How to use the Reader

Position the tube in the slot within the acrylic slider. The Readers baseline must intersect base of the red cells.

Carefully move the tube holder slide, making sure the top line intersects top of the plasma.

Adjust the knob on the left hand side of the reader; this moves the line under the slider. Make sure that the middle line intersects the top of the red cells.

Read the percentage P.C.V on the scale located on the right of the tube reader.
