Swivelock 5.5 and 4.75 drill bit, is it the same? Yes, the spade drill bit (AR-1927D) is the same for both 4.75 and 5.5 mm swivelock. The internal diameter of the anchors are the same. The exterior thread diameter is larger and this is why they have their own tap (AR-1927CTB for 5.5mm and AR-2324PTB for 4.75mm).

Proper techniques for acquiring the blood: Needle: 19-20G needle is recommended Transferring from Syringe to IRAP II kit: When placing the pulled blood into the IRAP hold it at a 45 degree angle and put the blood in
Make sure that after the blood is pulled it is placed in the incubator within 1-1.5 hours and isn’t around extreme heat prior to incubation
Incubation: Temperature: 37 degrees Time: 20-22 hrs. (Anything over 24 hrs. incubation will not product serum) Horizontal Incubation (red top down) -Vertical incubation still okay, however you have a higher chance of the clot being in the way after centrifugations.
Centrifugations: Spin with the white/clear side down. Allows the meniscus to be over the red side of the syringe. Clot will be furthest away from the clear tip
Setting the brake step (turning the brake off)? Canine blood processed in the Hettich ROTOFIX 32 A centrifuge has a potential for a greater yield when the brake is turned off. ACP Centrifuge User Manual Follow the manual, Step 13- Setting the brake step
