You might want to try nycoprep mixer where you mix the blood and the cells and
later collect the supernatant. I did this on mouse blood some time ago using
1ml eppendorf tubes. However, eventually I changed to whole blood measurements
for my application.

Subject: ficoll of small volumes
I am searching for the best way to ficoll small volumes of blood (i.e.,
100-200 of mouse blood) efficiently during sample prep for flow.
presently I am diluting the blood and spinning in 15 ml polypropylene tubes,
but the cell layer can be frighteningly thin.
can anyone suggest smaller tubes which have worked? our smaller 12x75mm tubes
are awfully cloudy and hard to see through.
