You have finished collecting blood and hand the samples to the laboratory. When you receive the lab results, you notice the following text in place of some of the measured values: “Tube underfilled. Measurement not possible. Please resubmit”. How does underfilling occur? How can this be avoided?
The new TourniSTRETCH tourniquet provides optimum protection against cross-contamination caused by patient-related multiple use.
The new PCR strips in Low Profile design combine the advantages of fast PCR with the convenience of separate lid strips.
Fluorescence-based applications, such as real-time PCR (qPCR), benefit from the significantly improved reflective properties of white PCR consumables, particularly when small volumes are used. Despite this, transparent consumables are often still used today to carry out qPCRs. Find out below how you can easily improve your qPCRs.
The centrifugation time as part of the Turn Around Time (TAT) is gaining more and more importance.
Find out below how sample quality is affected by centrifugation.
5 ml Micro Tubes – the intermediate volume option for labs
With our new 5 ml Micro Tubes, we can now also provide a tube option for even more convenient handling of 2 to 5 ml filling volumes.
For maximum sample recovery and especially safe storage, the Sarstedt range now also includes screw cap micro tubes with low protein and low DNA binding properties.
When preparing PCR samples in plates, strips and single tubes, PCR solutions must be kept cool as warming may result in unspecific PCR products.
We have launched a comprehensive range of TC Inserts to further extend our wide scope of high quality tissue culture products.
The tabletop centrifuges SMC 6 und SMC6plus are equipped with a swing-out rotor and are specially designed for use in small medical labs medical practices.
We are pleased to inform you that the Sarstedt Group has acquired the direct customer business in the field of lab automation of m-u-t GmbH, Wedel/Germany.
The new S-Monovette® DNA Exact with a validated performance provides the safety of standardized preanalytical DNA stabilization.
The Minivette® POCT with closure enables capillary blood collection from patients for point-of-care diagnostics in highly infectious nursing areas.
No need to take measuring devices in the direct, contaminated patient environment.
For more than 20 years, Sarstedt has been producing a wide range of high-quality cell culture products which are sold worldwide. These many years of experience and knowledge of the needs of users have allowed Sarstedt to optimise and continually expand the product range.
The advance in taking blood: the new Sarstedt disposable tourniquets made of a special plastic and paper composite material minimise the risk of cross-infections and the development of nosocomial infections and offer high levels of patient comfort in addition to an optimal hygiene standard.
Due to the trend towards increasingly smaller volumes, it is becoming evermore important to minimise any interactions between the analytes and the reaction tubes. Sarstedt has therefore developed a reaction tube that has been specially optimised for the requirements of DNA analytics.
The new revolver workstation consists of a total of 4 individual components – blue, yellow, green and red. These multi-coloured components made from polypropylene have a number of different holes (Ø 5 mm–Ø 30 mm), so tubes of different sizes can be placed next to each other.
