Tube for density gradient centrifugation for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) applications
What Our Scientist Says
Traditional isolation of PBMCs requires careful layering of blood onto density gradient media prior to centrifugation. We developed SepMate™ to simplify this process, so anyone can isolate PBMCs with a simple pour while maintaining consistency across samples.
SepMate™ tubes contain an insert that creates a barrier between the density gradient medium and blood, thus eliminating the need for careful blood layering and allowing mononuclear cells to be easily harvested with a simple pour. This product can be used with RosetteSep™ to isolate specific immune cell subsets.
SepMate™ is manufactured under cGMP and registered as an In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) device in Australia, Canada, Europe, and the USA. In China, SepMate™ is considered a nonmedical device by the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) and should be used as general lab equipment. The end user is responsible for determining whether the product is suitable for their specific application.
