Creamatocrit Plus is the first and only system dedicated to providing a fast, accurate creamatocrit measure.
Creamatocrit Plus introduces a simple and accurate technique for estimating the lipid concentration and calorific density in mothers’ milk. It provides information doctors need and the peace-of-mind mothers need to continue breastfeeding.
The creamatocrit technique is especially useful in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to ensure premature infants are receiving the calories they need to thrive.*
Creamatocrit Plus also guides the separation of foremilk and the high-lipid, high-calorific hindmilk to accelerate weight gain in extremely low birthweight infants.
*For research use only in the US. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Be sure to thoroughly mix the milk sample before drawing it into the tube.
Traditionally, if you were reading a creamatocrit with calipers or a hematocrit reader, you wouldn’t be able to discern anything less than a .5% difference (and that takes really good eyesight). The Creamatocrit Plus is digital and is programmed with the regression equation, so it takes precision to an entirely different level. It would be unlikely that you would get two results that are identical for that reason. Minor differences in the way you read the creamatocrit or place the cursor will produce minor changes in creamatocrit percentage. You wouldn’t be able to see these minor changes with the older methods, but because this is electronic and mathematical they will appear. You may want to spin two tubes of the milk sample and average the two results for a total.
It will not affect the result. Simply ignore it when marking the interfaces on the tube.
No, Creamatocrit Plus tubes must be used. Their specific type and inside diameter ensures the calculation of accurate results.
Some sealants do not work well. Use HemataSealTM sealant.
Be sure you use the following procedure for sealing the tubes:
Note: Do not push the holes out of the clay with your finger, as it can result in a thinned layer of sealant or air bubbles.
A control strip is included with the centrifuge. It can be used to confirm the tube reader is working correctly. Directions for performing a spin time and a tachometer test are in the manual.
Some sealants do not work well with milk. HemataSealTM performs well.
