Color Light green

  • Tubes with spray-coated lithium heparin and a gel for plasma separation
  • Eliminate the need to wait for a clot to form—ideal for STAT procedures and for patients receiving anticoagulant therapy
  • Tubes marked as Best Practice Formulary meet demanding requirements of complex diagnostic instruments and current clinical guidelines
  • Available with conventional tube stopper or Hemoguard™ tube closure that prevents human contact with blood on the stopper or tube rim

Evacuated tubes simplify blood collection

  • Blood is drawn directly from the vein into the evacuated sterile collection tubes
  • Only one venipuncture is needed to draw multiple samples
  • Tubes can be changed while needle and plastic holder remain in place on patient's arm
  • Closures are color coded
Plastic Evacuated Tubes
  • Made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET)
  • Provide a safer work environment for all personnel by (1) reducing risk of tube breakage during handling; (2) eliminating breakage when tubes are centrifuged at higher speeds; and (3) eliminating breakage or chipping of tube rims when stopper is removed and reinserted
  • In addition to reducing potential injuries, fewer tube breakages result in less workflow interruption and fewer patient redraws, providing smoother day-to-day operation

Hemogard Stoppers

  • Safety shield designed for safer tube handling
  • Rubber stopper is recessed inside the plastic shield, so any drops left by a blood collection needle remain isolated from potential contact
  • Shield is designed to protect lab personnel from direct contact with blood on the stopper or around the outer rim of the tube, as well as from blood splattering upon opening the tube
