cell culture sample tube / cone-bottom / capillary blood / capillary
PCV tube



  • Applications:

    for cell cultures

  • Shape:


  • Sample type:

    capillary blood

  • Other characteristics:



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 a quick analysis with the PCV tube and the read-out process with „easy read“ is 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

Features of the PCV tube:

PCV tube with calibrated capillary, some available with volume graduation
