Advantages of the PCV tube:
- PCV tube with calibrated capillary, some available with volume graduation
- fits standard microcentrifuges
The Determination of cell number density is a routine task in almost every laboratory working with cell cultures. The most commonly used method is counting cells manually with the hemacytometer, which is very time-consuming, tedious and prone to errors (margin of error about 15 %).
The PCV-system provides a fast, easy to use, reproducible and more accurate alternative to manual cell counting. The PCV-tubes enable the determination of the packed cell volume (PCV) in a cell suspension, resulting in absolute data correlating with parameters like protein content, cell count, metabolic activity and others.
The PCV-tubes are particularly convenient to work with, requiring neither special training nor sophisticated expensive machines – in contrast to automated cell counting devices.
