The PCV tube enables a quick and reproducible measuring technique of the cell volume. This method is ideal for the monitoring of the tissue growth (cell mass).
If during a production process many parameters need to be optimized, many samples accumulate at the same time. Here is a quick analysis with the PCV tube and the read out process with „easy read“ the method of the choice.
A short centrifugation step (1 minute at 2’500 gx) is sufficient to form a pellet in the calibrated capillary. There the pellet can be read with the “easy read” measuring device
Advantages of the PCV tube:
- PCV tube with calibrated capillary, some available with volume graduation
- fits standard microcentrifuges
