What is serum separation gel? It is a viscous fluid and an inert high molecular polymer. Its structure contains a large number of hydrogen bonds which associated with a net structure.
Serum separation gel is a mixture of high molecular polymers, which are polymerized from a variety of monomers with different molecular weights. Due to its relatively large molecular weight, its appearance like gel.
The principle of serum separation gel to separate serum and blood clots:
Serum separation gel is a substance used to separate serum from coagulated blood or divide plasma from cells.It forms a separation layer between the cellular components of blood and serum, which can effectively prevent the exchange of substances between blood cells and serum,and ensure the stability of serum components within a certain period of time.
First of all, serum separation gel can separate serum and blood clots because its thixotropic characteristic.With thixotropic,the net structure of serum separation gel is destroyed and becomes a fluid with low viscosity under the action of centrifugal force.When the centrifugal force disappears, the network structure is re-formed and return to a high viscosity fluid.
Therefore, under the action of thrombin, blood will form serum and blood clots. And under the action of centrifugal force, the separation gel become liquid and moves upward, preventing the material exchange between the serum and the blood clot.Then, the reason of serum separation gel can separate serum and blood clots is the specific gravity of serum separation gel is between 1.045-1.065, the blood clot is about 1.092g/ml, and the serum is about 1.025-1.030g/ml.The specific gravity of serum separation gel is in the middle, so it can isolate in the fully solidified state.After serum and clot are quickly centrifuged,high-quality samples will get to be shipped and transferred.
