Centrifuge for Clinical Laboratory
Laboratory results are used to screen, diagnosis or monitor disease states. Once a blood sample is collected in most cases the specimen needs to be centrifuged so that the specimen can be tested. A centrifuge is a laboratory instrument that rotates a specimen at a high speed to separate the sample (serum from cells) for analysis. There are many different centrifuge models and it is the most common instrument found in the laboratory. It is important to have an additional centrifuge in order to continue to meet the turnaround times for clinical decisions.
