Instructions for Use:

  • Immediately after sampling, the VF-054SAHL tube needs to be mixed gently and carefully (inversion 5 times).
  • Centrifuge the tube at room temperature, during at least 10 min. with a relative centrifugal force of 1200 G (+/-100 G).
    For optimal barrier formation, a swing-out rotor is recommended.
    Higher centrifugation force 4000 G (with stopper) or up to 13 000 G (without stopper) can be applied to get better platelet clearance.
    Lower centrifugation force might result in an incomplete gel barrier.
  • After complete separation with the gel barrier in place storage requirements depend on the stability of the analytes and are equivalent to storage requirements for decanted plasma samples.
