The QBC Malaria Tube is internally coated with all the necessary reagents and anticoagulants to perform a malaria test in minutes. The QBC Malaria Tube contains a fluorochrome called Acridine Orange and anticoagulants - when a capillary or venous blood sample is added, a precision engineered plastic float is inserted into the QBC Malaria Tube. When the QBC Malaria Tube is centrifuged, the blood becomes concentrated and the precision float sits level with the Buffy Coat layer. The blood components and malaria parasites separate based on density and concentrate in distinct layers. Parasites and leucocyte nuclei fluoresce a yellowish-green. It is in the Buffy Coat layer where the malaria parasites will be visible. 55-110
