The innovative VACUETTE® Blood Collection Tubes made out of virtually unbreakable PET plastic have set the standard on today‘s market. They provide improved safety and hygiene during specimen collection procedures with the advantage of being as clear as glass.
Most VACUETTE® Blood Collection Tubes contain chemical additives, which in combination with the pre-determined vacuum guarantee the correct mixing ratio for the blood sample. Reliable results and simple application make VACUETTE® the primary vessel for all current analysis instruments. All the tubes have the CE-mark and most are US FDA cleared.
The inner wall of the serum tube is specially coated with microscopic silica particles, which activate the coagulation process. Serum separator tubes contain a separation gel in the base of the tube; during centrifugation, this gel forms a stable barrier between the serum and the blood cells.
