Question Answer
Yellow: Additive: SPS--- Sodium Polyanetholsulfonate (poly-anethol-sulfonate) What additive does: Prevents the blood from clotting and stabilizes bacterial growth. Laboratory Uses: Blood and bodily fluid cultures
Blood Cultures collected for Fever of Unknown Origin (FUO) Additive: Culture Medium Aerobic collected first Anaerobic collected second Site must be cleaned 2 times, once with alcohol and once with iodine Collect 8-10 ml per bottle 3-4 ml per bottle for children Invert bottles 8-10 times
Light Blue: Additive: Sodium Citrate (Fill tube completely for 9:1 ratio blood to Sodium Citrate, cannot collect capillary blood in this tube- venipuncture only.) What additive does: Removes calcium to prevent blood from clotting Laboratory uses: Coagulation (clotting process) Different testing: PT
Additive: None What additive does: None Laboratory Uses: Serum testing; chemistry studies, blood bank, serology Different Testing: RH Typing, Antibody screening
Gold tube and tiger tops are drawn together either order. Additive: Polymer Gel and clot activator
Additive: None, but contains silica particles to enhance clot formation What additive does: speeds clotting process Laboratory Uses: Serum testing Different Testing: BMP, CMP, Lipid panel (cholesterol), CA125, HCG Quantitative, HIV, Iron, PSA, routine Electrolytes TSH Invert 5-6 times
Dark Green Additive: Heparin(Sodium) What additive does: Inhibits thrombin formation to prevent clotting Laboratory uses: Chemistry Testing Stat Electrolyte levels (does not require clotting and spinning time) Different testing: Plasma determinations in chemistry Invert 8-10 times
Light Green: Additive: Lithium Heparin and gel What additive does: Aids in the separation of plasma Laboratory uses: Plasma determinations in chemistry studies Invert 8-10 times
Marbled Green: Additive: Ammonium Heparin Laboratory uses: chemistry studies Invert 8-10 times
Lavender: Additives: EDTA--- Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid( Ethylen-ediamine-tetra-acetic Acid) (say-it-slow ;) ) What additive does: Removes calcium preventing clotting of blood Laboratory uses: Hematology testing Different testing: ESR, CBC w/diff., HgBA1c Invert 8-10 times
Gray: Additives: Potassium oxalate and Sodium fluoride What additive does: Removes calcium preventing clotting, fluoride inhibits glycolysis Laboratory uses: Chemistry testing, especially glucose(sugar) and alcohol Different testing: Glucose, Blood Alcohol level (do not use alcohol to clean the site for alcohol testing and do not remove lid of tube or alcohol evaporates), GTT, Glucose fasting
Royal Blue: Additives: Sodium Heparin also Sodium EDTA What additive does: Inhibits Thrombin formation to prevent clotting Laboratory uses: Chemistry trace elements Different testing: Trace elements of metals such as Zinc, Copper, Lead and Mercury Invert 8-10 times
