The product attributes are designed to optimise performance.

BD Hemogard closure

BD Hemogard closure

The closure is lime colour for easy identification.

Surfactant coating on separator

Surfactant coating on separator

The coating is optimised to not interfere with analyte testing.

Mechanical Separator

Mechanical separator

The separator is launched under centrifugation. It creates a stable, robust barrier.

Elastomer top

Elastomer top

The top stretches under centrifugation, and creates a seal on the inside wall of the tube at the end of centrifugation.

High-density base

High-density base

The high-density plastic base uses differential buoyancy between plasma and cells to ensure the separator orients correctly under centrifugation.

Number per pack for all tube sizes: 100/pack, 1000/case.
