STAT Blood Chemistry
Lavender Tube
K2-Potassium
EDTA- Binds Calcium
Used for Hematology Testing
Tests
CBC
ESR Sed Rate
Retic Count
Blood Smears can be done within 1 hour.
EDTA
Binds Calcium
Laventer testing is done in...
Hematology Department
Pink Tube
K2-Potassium
EDTA
EDTA Binds Calcium
Used for Blood Bank Testing
K2
used in lavender tube to help preserve the cells. Potassium
Blood Bank Testing
Pink Tube
Tests done in the Blood Bank are...
ABO RH Testing (Blood Typing)
Cross Match
Citrate
Binds Calcium
Light Blue
Citrate - to Bind calcium
Na- Sodium
Coagulation Testing
PT
PTT
Fibrinogen
coagulation factors
Only tube with a fill line (critical to fill to the top) (9:1 ratio)
Na
Sodium to preserve the coagulation factors
Clear with Red Top Tube
Discard tube to be used with Butterfly while using Citrate/ lt blue
Heparin
Green or Royal Blue
Green Top Tube
3 Different Types of Green
Heparin- Inhibits Thrombin
Amonium/Lithium/Sodium
Chemistry Testing (all Three)
Sodium Heparin used for ONLY Lithium Testing
Sodium Heparin
Cannot be used for all chemistries because of the sodium. it is only used for Lithium Testing
Lithium Heparin
Anticoagulant and preservative for the enzymes we test in Chemistry with one exception (lithium Testing)
Green Tube Testing
Chemistry Testing
Electrolytes
Glucose
Lipid Panel
Cardiac Enzymes
Lithhium Testing
NO BLOOD SMEARS
Grey Top Tube
Oxilate (anticoagulant)
Sodium Floiride-Anti glycolytic (prevents glucose breakdown)
and Potassium
Grey Top Tube Tests
Goes to Chemistry
Glucose Testing
GTT glucose tolerance test
Yellow (Bright Yellow) tube top Skinny
Yellow-SPS for blood culture collection ONLY (when we are out of the bottles)
Yellow tubes go to...
Microbiology
Yellow FAT tube top
Anticoagulant
ACD
CPD
STAT fasting Glucose
Green Tube- but if it gets to the lab and waits a while gets misplaces, or unseen the results are altered because of the breakdown. GREY will preserve due to the ANTIGLYCOLYTIC agent.
Red
Clot Activator
It gives us serum (1 of only 2)
Imunology (HIV, Hepatitus Panels, Mono, RPR, Syphilis
Gold
Clot Activator
It gives us Serum ( 1 of only 2)
Same as Red except there is gel present)
Chemistry Testing
Red Tube Department Testing
Mainly used for Imunology
Some Chemistries
Gold Tube Department Testing
Chemistry Testing The majority of Chemistry tests
Green vs. Gold Top since both are Chemistry
Gold gives us Serum
Green Gives us Plasma
Green is used for STAT testing (we do not have to wait for clotting)
Gold Tube- (stat or Not)
Routine Testing They come to regional lab because it is non urgent
Royal Blue (dark blue)
Trace Element free tubes (aka Metal Free Tubes)
Sterilized in a process to make it metal free.
Chemistry Tests- lead, arsenic, aluminum, copper, zinc, mercury
Royal Blue Tests
lead, Copper, arsenic, aluminum, zinc, mercury
Royal Blue Red Label Additive
No Additive- gives us serum
Royal Blue Lavender Label
EDTA - Anticoagulant
Royal Blue Green Label Additive
Heparin
Tan
EDTA anticoagulant binds calciu
K2
it is a small tube
test for lead mostly with little kids physicals (and since the royal blue is so big we use it for kids)
Chemistry
Tan tube testing
LEAD only- this is its only purpose
Chemistry it is lead free
Gel Separator
It seperates the formed elements and the Plasma, and protects the plasma from being effected by the dying cells.
Light Green- PST Plasma Seperator tube
White Pearl Top (PPT) same as lavender EDTA but with Gel
Gold (SST) serum separator Tube
GOLD with Gel also known as
SST
gives us Serum
Light Green with Gel also known as...
PST Plasma separator Tube
White Pearl with Gel also known as...
