Centrifugation

A centrifuge role in blood testing is to separate whole blood into its various components. Each component of blood has a specific use in the body and therefore, a different test may be required for each component. Blood can be centrifuged in a tube.
Blood is separated in blood tubes by its various components:
• Red Blood Cells (RBC), erythrocytes, carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
• White blood cells (WBC), or leucocytes, aid the immune system in fighting infections. There are five types of WBC: lymphocytes,
monocytes, eosinophils, basophils, and neutrophils (granulocytes).
• Plasma is a yellowish component in which the blood is normally suspended.
• Plasma contains proteins, glucose, clotting factors, hormones, and carbon dioxide
