Introduction to the performance and advantages of the serial separation gel
In recent years, serum separation gel has been indispensable in clinical blood testing. Its use as an additive in vacuum tubes has an undeniable effect, not only ensuring the accuracy of blood testing results, but also saving waiting time for medical staff and patients. Since it is an important additive, it is important for everyone to have an understanding of it during use, otherwise it may lead to unnecessary troubles, such as hemolysis, wall hanging, poor flipping, etc. Let's introduce it in detail below.
1、 What is serum separation gel?
As a high molecular compound, it is physiologically inert, insoluble in water, and has a large number of hydrogen bonds in its structure, which has good thixotropy and separation properties. Driven by centrifugal force, the reticular structure is destroyed, but it can be gathered together again in a short time due to thixotropy, thus isolating the blood. It is often used to separate serum and blood clots in yellow vacuum tubes.
2、 Is the performance of serum separation gel up to standard?
The measurement of whether the performance meets the standard mainly depends on the control of key numerical values such as appearance, specific gravity, and viscosity. Although many manufacturers produce serum separation gel in the market, the basic requirement for specific gravity is between 1.045 and 1.065g/cm3, because this is the only way to effectively separate blood. The appearance requirements are different, usually transparent, semi transparent, or opaque, without any impurities, and the viscosity needs to be maintained between 100000 to 300000 kPa, which is easy to add and thixotropic.

3、 What are the other advantages of serum separation gel?
1. Hydrolysis resistance
At present, most of the separation adhesives used are acrylic and resin systems, which are hydrophobic materials with hydrolysis resistance. When in long-term contact with water or other reagents, there will be no reaction changes, so to some extent, the original properties of blood are guaranteed, which is conducive to the accuracy of detection results.
2. Radiation resistance
Because it is used in vacuum blood collection vessels, the basic requirement is to ensure that the collected blood components are not damaged. If there are bacteria in the tube, it will definitely interfere with the test results. Therefore, many manufacturers will carry out radiation resistance treatment. Generally, the separation gel with radiation resistance is not prone to aging, and the entire blood operation is carried out in a sterile environment, avoiding the occurrence of cross infection.
