Platelet Function Centrifuge — C/N 106842

The new PDQ, Platelet Function Centrifuge, dedicated solely to the standardization of platelet sample preparation, reduces process time to five minutes. Platelet Rich Plasma is available in just 30 seconds, Platelet Poor Plasma in 120 seconds and Platelet Free Plasma in 180 seconds.

Product Overview

The PDQ is optimized for consistent sample quality, the three process cycles offer greater control and sample precision without any measurable platelet activation. The PDQ has been validated for platelet function testing, and carries the CE mark for distribution in the European Union.

The PDQ accepts evacuated specimen collection and aliquot tubes, and may be used as a companion to any light transmission aggregometer engaged in platelet function testing. The four position, personal size centrifuge, is only seven inches in diameter… is quiet and vibration free. The primary purpose of the PDQ is to centralize the sample preparation process adjacent to the platelet aggregometer for specimen control standardization and greater time efficiency.
