Blood collection systems

The S-Sedivette® venous blood collection system enables hygienic, easy handling in an enclosed system. The Microvette® CB 200 ESR blood collection system is designed for 200 µl of blood only and ensures minimal patient discomfort when collecting blood. Both systems are proven to perform well in comparison with the Westergren method.

General

  • +

    Can the S 200 and S 2000 ESR analysers be integrated into an existing LIS system?

    Yes, the ESR analysers can be integrated through an interface.

  • +

    Do all S-Sedivettes have to be placed in the S 200 or S 2000 devices at the same time?

    No, each measuring station can be filled individually / independently of time.

  • +

    Is there an option to automatically determine ESR?

    Yes, ESR can be automatically determined with the Sediplus® S 200 (10 measuring stations) or the Sediplus® S 2000 (40 to 160 measuring stations).

  • +

    What must be taken into account when using the S-Sedivette® for blood sedimentation?

    In principle, for blood sedimentation the S-Sedivette® should be carefully mixed after blood collection. According to the CLSI standard, the measurement must be started at the latest 4–6 hours after blood collection. The first reading of the blood sedimentation rate (ESR) should take place after 60 minutes. 

  • +

    How is the S-Sedivette® prepared?

    The S-Sedivette® is prepared with trisodium citrate solution, which is 20% of the nominal volume. This ensures the important ratio for blood sedimentation of 1 part citrate + 4 parts blood.

  • +

    What is the shelf life of the S-Sedivette®?

    The S-Sedivette® has a shelf life of 15 months.

  • +

    Does the S-Sedivette® have to be mixed after blood collection?

    Yes, the S-Sedivette® must be mixed well immediately after blood collection: tilt the S-Sedivette® upside down carefully five times. The air bubble/glass bead must always travel right up to the end! Do not shake it quickly. The special mixing devices Sarmix® M 200 and Sarmix® M 2000 are recommended for safety and to save time.

  • +

    Are the values from the S-Sedivette® comparable to the Westergren method?

    The S-Sedivette® was developed and evaluated for determining the blood sedimentation rate (ESR) according to the Westergren method.
