Minilab Micro Vacuum Blood Collection Tube
Minilab micro vacuum blood collection tube are used for capillary blood collection.
The design of micro blood collection tube guarantees a largely pain and stress free blood sample collection, even for our smallest patients.
Specially designed carrier tubes make centrifugation possible in standard instruments.
Instruction for use:
Remove closure from tube and place on a convenient surface. The closure may be nested on the base of the tube.
Puncture skin with the appropriate lancet. Dispose of lancet in a approved sharps container. Wipe away the first drop of blood with gauze.
Hold micro blood collection tube at degree 30~40 angle from surface of puncture site. Touch collector end of reservior to drop of blood. Avoid scraping skin surface to collect blood sample. After collecting 2 or 3 drops, blood will freely flow down reservior wall to bottom of tube.
Fill tubes between the fill marks. Over or underfilling of tube may result in clotting and / or erroneous test results.
Replace closure by twisting and pushing cap downward.
Fit the extender into the bottom of the reservior and extend the tube lenght for centrifugation.
