20 UNIT 2 ■ Venipuncture Equipment FIGURE 2–17. Cut-away view of a vacuum tube stopper (Hemogard closure). ) Tests requiring whole blood or plasma are collected in tubes containing an anticoagulant. Different types of anticoagulants are required for specific tests. All tubes containing an anticoagulant must be gently inverted three to eight times immediately after collection to mix the contents and to avoid microclot formation. Tubes containing an anticoTECHNICAL TIP agulant must be completely filled to the designated volume draw.

Blood drawn in a syringe must be immediately transferred to appropriate evacuated tubes to prevent the formation of clots. In the past, blood was transferred by puncturing the rubber stopper with the syringe needle and allowing the blood to be drawn, but not forced, into the tube. This is now considered unsafe according to the CLSI standards. Blood transfer devices provide a safer means for blood transfer when collecting blood with a syringe. It is an evacuated tube holder with 26 UNIT 2 ■ Venipuncture Equipment TABLE 2–2.

Red stopper glass tubes and Hemogard closures are often referred to as clot or plain tubes because they contain no anticoagulants or additives. Blood collected in red stopper glass tubes clots by the normal coagulation process in about 60 minutes. TECHNICAL TIP Centrifugation of the specimen then yields serum as the liquid portion. Red stopper tubes are used for the same purpose as the red plastic tubes. There is Centrifugation of incomno need to invert glass red stopper tubes. pletely clotted SST tubes Red/light gray rubber stopper and clear Hemogard closures are plain tubes can produce a nonintact because they contain no anticoagulants, additives, or gel.
