Under normal conditions, serum separation gel is used in extracorporeal blood testing, but many people do not know whether serum separation gel is harmful to the human body. In fact, it can be judged from several aspects to determine whether it is harmful to the human body.
First of all, we can first look at the components of the serum separation gel. The components of the serum separation gel are polyolefin, polyester or propylene, silica powder, thixotropic agents and stabilizers. After these materials are in contact with blood, the product's hydrolysis resistance is not harmful, but the ability to resist hydrolysis will have a certain impact on the contact materials. However, nowadays, serum separation gels with better hydrolysis resistance are generally used.
Another aspect is to look at the use status of the serum separation gel. Everyone knows that the earliest serum separation gel is generally used in vacuum blood collection tubes to separate serum and blood clots. With time development, the current serum separation gel can also be used in vacuum blood collection tubes. Plastic surgery and medical treatment in some departments are targeted, but this is by extracting substances from the human body, and then using the extracted substances to backfill the human body.
Used in blood collection tubes, it still has no effect because it will not touch the human body. But will the use for cosmetic surgery affect the human body? Because this method of use is different from the blood collection tube, it is separated by the serum separation gel, so that the platelets and serum proteins in the serum and blood clots can be better extracted, but the serum separation gel will come into contact with the extract during this process. Yes, and these substances have to be filled back into the human body at the end, so does this part of the substances have an impact on the human body? This type of separation gel has a professional name called PRP gel. It is a serum separation gel that is specially used to extract platelets and other components. The quality specifications are very high. Only when the quality requirements and biocompatibility meet the requirements will it not be used. Have a negative impact on the human body.
It can be seen from the above that the serum separation gel basically has no effect on the human body. However, if you find that there are foreign bodies, abnormal odors, abnormal colors, etc. in the serum separation gel, or the effective use period has passed, try not to use it, because there is no guarantee whether it will affect the human body. Moreover, there are some differences in the process and raw materials between the manufacturers of serum separation gel. If there are multiple brands of serum separation gel, please do not mix them. This will cause the residue of the serum separation gel and affect the test results of the blood collection tube. Phenomena such as reaction of the contact material.
