Hettich HAEMATOKRIT 210 Tabletop Hematocrit Centrifuge Used in Clinical Mastisis Research
The Hettich HAEMATOKRIT 210 tabletop hematocrit centrifuge was employed in the study “Alterations in Hematological and Serum Biochemical Parameters of Sahel Goats with Clinical Mastisis,” published by the Journal and Agriculture and Veterinary Science. The study aimed to evaluate the hematological and serum biochemical parameter changes in Sahel goats with clinical mastisis.
Mastisis is a prevalent disease in dairy goats that is caused by several microbial agents, such as Staphylococcousaureus, yeast and fungi. The disease causes physical, chemical, pathological and bacteriological alterations in milk and glandular tissues and can be fatal. For their research, scientists collected blood samples from 26 Sahel goats with clinical mastisis and from ten normal goats to serve as a control group. Hematocrit testing on the blood samples was accomplished with the Hettich HAEMATOKRIT 210 tabletop hematocrit centrifuge.
The results of the study indicated significant fluctuations in hematological and serum biochemical parameters. The researchers concluded that the “alterations could be due to altered quality of milk as a result of the physical, pathological, bacteriological and glandular changes.”
Hettich’s comprehensive line of centrifuges enables scientists to conduct important testing and research, such as this study on mastisis and dairy goats. The HAEMATOKRIT 210 is a quiet, safe and reliable centrifuge that can run hematocrit tests on up to 24 capillaries in seven minutes.
