SURUVACUTER™ Tubes, Needles and Holders are used together as a system for the collection of venous blood.
SURUVACUTER™ Tubes are used to transport and process blood for testing Serum, Plasma or Whole Blood in the clinical laboratory.
SURUVACUTER™ Tubes are evacuated tubes with colored closures. They are available in Glass and PET (Poly-ethylene Terephthalate) Plastic Tubes. A silicone coating on all the inner walls of the tubes reduces adherence of red cells to tube walls. Tube stoppers are also lubricated with silicone to facilitate stopper insertion. Both Tube types contain additives in varying concentrations depending upon the amount of vacuum and the required “Additive to Blood” ratio for the tube. Additive choice depends on the Analytical test method
