Cascade HealthCare Products carries BD Vacutainer Blood Collection Tubes with Lavender Hemogard Closures for whole blood hematology determinations. These plastic tubes are spray coated with silicone and contain an K2 EDTA additive. Each comes with a Hemogard Closure recessed withn the tube and covered by a plastic shield to help protect laboratory personnel from contact with blood on the stopper or around the outer rim of the tube. The BD Hemogard tube closure also helps prevent blood from splattering when the tube is opened.
The BD Vacutainer Blood Collection Tube with Lavender closure with K2 EDTA may be used for routine immunohematology testing and blood donor screening. Tube inversions ensure mixing of anticoagulant (EDTA) with blood to prevent clotting. For more details on what each tube type is used for, click here to see BD's Tube Guide.
