Globe Scientific glass capillary tubes are designed for both safe blood collection as well as accurate micro-hematocrit determinations.
Precision molded, they provide excellent sample retention during centrifugation
The tubes fill rapidly without affecting specimen integrity
The tubes are available plain (untreated) or with an anticoagulant (sodium or ammonium heparin) that keeps the blood from clotting
All of the soda lime glass tubes have color coded ends to easily identify the plain and heparin treated tubes:
Untreated - Blue Tip
Ammonium Heparinized - Green Tip
Sodium Heparinized - Red Tip
Inside Diameter: 1.15mm +/- 0.05mm
Outside Diameter: 1.5mm +/- 0.05mm
Length: 75mm +/- 1mm
Spin rate: 14,500RPM for 5 minutes
Material: Soda Lime
If collecting anti-coagulated blood from a blood collection tube, use a plain capillary tube.
If collecting by finger stick from a patient or when using untreated blood, use capillary tubes that are treated with an anticoagulant (heparin).
