PCV (Packed Cell Volume) Tubes and Reader

  • Fast alternative to cell counting
  • Easy-to-use
  • Accurate and reproducible
The PCV-system is a fast, easy-to-use, reproducible and more accurate alternative to manual cell counting. With PCV-tubes you can quickly determine the Packed Cell Volume (PCV) of a cell suspension. The PCV can be directly converted to cell count via a standard curve of the specific cell type.

The PCV-tubes are convenient to work with, requiring no special training or expensive instruments. A short centrifugation (1 minute at 2500g) is sufficient to form a pellet in the calibrated capillary. The pellet can then be read with the “easy read” measuring device.
