1. Product Introducation:
Q: What does EDTA stand for and how does the anticoagulant work?
A: EDTA stands for Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. EDTA functions by binding calcium in the blood and keeping the blood from clotting
Q: What is the concentration of EDTA in the lavender and pink stoppered tubes?
A: The nominal EDTA concentration is 1.8mg EDTA per milliliter of blood.
Q: Why do some Vacutainer lavender top blood collection tubes contain K2EDTA and others contain K3EDTA?
A: Vacutainer Plus Blood Collection Tubes contain K2EDTA, which is spray-dried to the walls of the tube. K2EDTA is recommended by the CLSI (CLSI guideline - Evacuated Tubes and Additives for Blood Specimen Collection-Fifth Edition H1-A5, 2003) and the ICSH (International Council for Standardization in Hematology). Vacutainer glass blood collection tubes contain K3EDTA, the liquid form of EDTA.
