How it Works The dry hematology approach of the QBC STAR is unique among hematology analyzers. Here’s how this patented technology delivers results: Float Plasma The Tubes The QBC STAR’s breakthrough technology begins with its unique blood collection tubes. These highgrade tubes are internally coated with all necessary stains and reagents and are easily filled with just 65mL of blood from finger sticks, heel sticks, or venous draws. Lymphocytes + Monocytes centrifuge the sample at 11,000 RPM for approximately 5 minutes. Due to their varying densities, the different components of blood will separate...
