Small tubes, great impact

No more tubes and funnels

The cumbersome process of transferring the drop of blood using capillary tubes or funnels is in the past, thanks to this system because the blood collection scoop is integrated into the wide tube opening. ‘The sample comes into contact with the additive immediately,’ the manufacturer reports. ‘The caps are completely sealed, meet the highest standards and can easily be sent via pneumatic dispatch or other transport systems without losing any sample material.’

Carrier tubes and combined filling volumes simplify use ‘For centrifugation, the MiniCollect tubes can be inserted into a premium carrier tube using a simple rotational movement. When combined, the dimensions correspond to a standard 13 x 75 mm tube format and can easily be placed in a standard rack or standard centrifuge.’ Two easily visible filling marks on the tube provide greater flexibility for use. The new MiniCollect capillary blood collection system is on show at Medica.
