Clinical centrifuges are laboratory devices used to separate different components of a liquid sample based on their density. They work by spinning the sample at high speeds, causing the heavier components to settle to the bottom while the lighter components remain at the top. Clinical centrifuges are commonly used in medical laboratories to separate blood components such as red blood cells, plasma, and serum. This allows for the analysis of various blood parameters and the isolation of specific components for further testing or research. Clinical centrifuges come in different sizes and configurations depending on the laboratory's specific needs and can be operated manually or with automation features for increased efficiency.
