        MGIGLab-S Automated Blood Fractionation

        In our S Series Configuration of the MGIGLab, fully automated blood fractionation is realized with integrated tube loading/unloading, centrifugation, information/barcode collection, buffy coat separation, plasma separation, product storage and a consumable/disposable area.  By assembling a large number of individual instrument modules, reproducing manual steps, into a closed system, a complete workflow and walk-away automation from blood & buffy coat is realized producing an annual production output of 500,000 blood samples.
