Study demonstrates that tube seals performed by Qseal-free do not break during centrifugation.

January 9, 2018

In order to avoid loss of blood due to tube seals that break during centrifugation, Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden, performed a study about tube seals and the impact of the mechanical stress of centrifugation.

According to the summary “100% of the seals made with Qseal-free withstood all centrifuge cycles at maximum g-force without showing any signs of weakness or leakage.”

The study was presented as a poster at the ISBT in Guangzhou.
