Issues related to serum separation gel in blood samples

In modern medical practice, the collection and processing of blood samples are of great significance for the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis evaluation of diseases. In this process, serum separation gel plays an irreplaceable role as a commonly used laboratory tool. This article aims to explore in depth the application and related issues of serum separation gel in blood sample processing.


The basic concept and function of clear separation adhesive


Serum separating gel, also known as gel separating agent, is a special gel material, which is mainly used to separate serum or plasma in blood samples. Its working principle is to use the specific density and viscosity of gel to form a barrier after blood coagulation to effectively isolate serum or plasma from blood cells. This can not only improve the purity of serum, but also reduce the interference of enzymes, proteins, and other substances released due to blood cell rupture on serum components, thereby ensuring the accuracy of experimental results.


Types and selection of serum separation gels


There are various types of serum separation gels on the market, and different types of separation gels have differences in density, viscosity, chemical stability, etc. Therefore, in practical applications, it is necessary to choose according to specific experimental requirements and sample characteristics. For example, for samples that need to be stored or transported for a long time, separation gel with good chemical stability and not easy to degrade should be selected; For samples that require rapid separation, a separation gel with moderate viscosity and easy operation should be selected.


Precautions for the use of serum separation gel


Although serum separation gel has many advantages in blood sample processing, the following points should also be noted during use:


1. If a procoagulant is added to the serum separation tube, it should be shaken thoroughly to ensure that the procoagulant attached to the tube wall can be fully mixed with the blood.


2. The ratio of separation gel to blood sample should be appropriate, as too much or too little separation gel can affect the separation effect. Generally speaking, it is recommended to follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer for operation.


3. The separated serum or plasma should be promptly transferred to a clean container for storage, to avoid prolonged contact with the separation gel that may cause changes in the composition.


Storage and disposal of serum separation gel


As a chemical product, the storage and disposal of serum separation gel also require special attention:


1. The storage environment should be dry, cool, and well ventilated, avoiding direct sunlight and high temperature and humidity. At the same time, it should be stored separately from flammable and explosive materials to ensure safety.


2. The waste separation adhesive after use should be treated as medical waste to avoid environmental pollution caused by indiscriminate disposal.


3. For expired or deteriorated separation adhesives, they should be cleaned and replaced with new products in a timely manner to ensure the accuracy and reliability of experimental results.


5、 Market prospects and development trends of serum separation gel


With the continuous progress of medical technology and the increasing clinical demand, the application of serum separation gel in blood sample processing will become increasingly widespread. In the future, with the continuous emergence and improvement of new materials and processes, the performance and quality of serum separation gel will be further improved, providing more convenient and efficient services for clinical diagnosis and scientific research. Meanwhile, with the increasing awareness of environmental protection and the continuous improvement of regulations and policies, the production and use of serum separation gel will also pay more attention to environmental protection and safety considerations.


In summary, serum separation gel plays an important role in blood sample processing, and its type selection, usage precautions, and storage and disposal all require sufficient attention from us.
