StatSpin MP Centrifuge

Blood, urine, hematocrits and other routine spins in two minutes or less

The StatSpin MP centrifuge is used for centrifuging microhematocrit tubes for packed cell volume determination, as well as rapid separation of whole blood and preparation of urine sediment for microscopic analysis. Quality serum or plasma separations takes as little as 30 seconds and no more than two minutes. Its small size and quiet operation make it the ideal general-purpose centrifuge for the STAT laboratory, clinic or office laboratory. 

HemoCue America distributes StatSpin products in the U.S., except to veterinary laboratories and veterinary offices.

Small sample volume requirements make the StatSpin MP ideal for finger-stick procedures, reducing the labor and expense of venous blood collection. It’s fast and separates samples in a fraction of the time required by other systems, providing quality serum or plasma separations in 30 to 120 seconds. This whisper-quiet system produces nearly vibration-free operation.

The versatile StatSpin MP is instantly adaptable to blood separations, urine sediments, hematocrits and LipoClear and meets international safety standards.

With simple microprocessor controls and self-diagnostics, this easy-to-use system reduces the chance of operator error. Investing in a cost-effective StatSpin MP centrifuge strengthens your laboratory’s fiscal goals by improving your pre-analytical turnaround time, increasing worker efficiency and supporting multiple applications in one system.

Applications

  • Blood separation: Perform quality serum or plasma separations with a spin time of only 30 to 120 seconds
  • Lipemic sample clearing: Clear lipemia from 0.5 or 1.5 mL of serum or plasma with LipoClear simply and effectively. Samples require a quick five-minute room temperature incubation followed by a 95-second spin. The prefilled, ready-to-use tubes are non-toxic with a one-year shelf life
  • Urine sediment: The unique micromethod correlates with standard procedure and requires only 1.5 mL of urine. Filling and decanting is easy with pre-calibrated conical flip-cap tubes. The “Urine Sediment” mode takes only 45 seconds
  • Hematocrits: The StatSpin MP offers a whisper-quiet, two-minute spin for 12 tubes at a time. Choose from glass or easy-to-read SafeCrit plastic tubes (plain or heparinized). An inexpensive, hand-held reader and illuminating digital reading station are also available.
