7. Which microhematocrit principle is correct?

  1. A capillary tube is filled with plasma by capillary action to within 1 to 2 cm of the end. The unfilled end is sealed and the tube is centrifuged. After centrifugation, the capillary tube is placed in a reading device and the hematocrit value determined.
  2. A capillary tube is filled with whole blood by capillary action to within 1 to 2 cm of the end. The unfilled end is sealed and the tube is centrifuged. After centrifugation, the capillary tube is placed in a reading device and the hematocrit value determined.

  4. A capillary tube is filled with whole blood by capillary action to within 1 to 2 cm of the end.  The filled end is sealed and the tube is centrifuged. After centrifugation, the capillary tube is read and recorded.

  1. One forth.
  2. Halfway.
  3. Three fourths.
  4. Completely.

11. Measuring the microhematocrit test, when blood is allowed to enter the two capillary tubes to approximately 2/3 full and air bubbles appear, what does this signify?

  1. A poor technique was used but it does not affect the results of  the test.
  2. The heparinized capillary tube line was passed.
  3. The tubes were dirty.
  4. The seal was broken.

12. At what rpm and for how long are the 2 hematocrit tubes centrifuged for the microhematocrit test?

  3. 10,000 rpm; 5 minutes.
  4. 15,000 rpm; 7 minutes.
