The EDTA K2 Tube for venous blood collection is a reliable and convenient tool designed for efficient specimen collection in hematology. Each pack contains 100 tubes, ensuring an ample supply for laboratory and clinical settings.
Made from virtually unbreakable PET plastic, these tubes provide enhanced safety and durability during handling and transportation. The clear construction of the tubes allows for easy visibility of the blood sample, making it as clear as glass and facilitating accurate analysis.
The inner wall of the tube is coated with spray-dried K2EDTA, which acts as a potent anticoagulant. K2EDTA binds calcium ions and interrupts the clotting cascade, preventing blood from clotting and preserving the integrity of the sample for subsequent analysis.
The EDTA K2 Tubes are available with gel separators, which aid in the separation of serum or plasma from the whole blood after centrifugation. This feature allows for easier processing and analysis of the desired components.
In addition to K2EDTA tubes, K3EDTA Blood Collection Tubes are also available, offering an alternative anticoagulant option based on specific requirements or preferences.
For immunohematology purposes, the tubes come with pink caps, providing easy identification and differentiation for specialized applications.
Each tube has a volume of 2ml, providing an adequate sample size for various laboratory procedures. With a quantity of 100 pieces per pack, these tubes offer a cost-effective solution for routine blood collection needs.
EDTA K2 Tube for venous blood collection provides improved safety, hygiene, and convenience during specimen collection procedures. Its anticoagulant properties, durable construction, and availability in different variations make it an essential tool in hematology and immunohematology applications.
Blood Collection Tube is an essential tool used in clinical settings for various blood-related tests and analyses. It offers comprehensive protection for blood cells and ensures the integrity of the specimen during storage and processing. The tube is available in different colors, each designed for specific clinical applications and containing different additives or anticoagulants.
- Red Cap: Used for serum biochemistry tests. Volume options range from 2ml to 5ml. The tube does not contain any additives, but it has a silicone coating on the interior walls to reduce adherence of red cells to the tube walls.
- Yellow Cap: Designed for quick serum biochemistry tests. Similar to the red cap tube, it is available in various volumes. It contains a separation gel and clot activator, along with a silicone coating on the interior walls.
- Orange Cap: Also used for quick serum biochemistry tests. Available in different volumes, it contains a clot activator with fibrin ferment. The interior walls have a silicone coating.
- Blue Cap: Specifically for blood coagulation tests, this tube is available in different volumes. It requires the blood volume to be 9 times the volume of sodium citrate anticoagulant.
- Grey Cap: Used for blood glucose tests, it is available in various volumes. The tube contains an anticoagulant, such as EDTA and Sodium Fluoride.
- Green Cap: Designed for blood rheology tests, this tube is available in different volumes. It contains either Lithium heparin or Sodium heparin as an anticoagulant.
- Aqua Cap: Used for quick plasma biochemistry tests, it is available in different volumes. The tube contains a separation gel and Lithium heparin.
- White Cap: Specifically for nucleic acid detection tests, it is available in various volumes. The tube contains a separation gel and EDTA as an anticoagulant.
- Purple Cap: Used for whole blood tests, it is available in different volumes. It contains either EDTA-2K or EDTA-3K as an anticoagulant.
- Black Cap: Designed for ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) tests, it is available in various volumes. The tube requires the blood volume to be 4 times the volume of sodium citrate anticoagulant.
These color-coded tubes provide convenience and accuracy in various clinical procedures by ensuring the right anticoagulant or additive is used for specific tests. They help maintain the integrity of the blood specimen and facilitate reliable and accurate laboratory results.
