Specimen Requirements
 
 
Fasting Required Specimen Type Preferred Container/Tube Acceptable Container/Tube Specimen Volume Specimen Minimum Volume
(allows for 1 repeat)
Pediatric Minimum Volume
(no repeat)
No​ ​Plasma/Serum​Lithium-heparin Plasma Separator (PST)​, Serum Separator Tube (SST)

Lithium or Sodium-heparin Green Top (GTT), Red Top Tube (RTT)

2 mL​0.5 mL​0.8 mL whole blood​
*​i-Stat only = Whole Blood​Lithium-heparin Green Top Tube (GTT)​1 mL​200 uL
Collection Processing Instructions
Samples collected in a RTT or GTT must be removed from cells within one hour for storage or transport. Samples collected in gel barrier tubes must be removed from the primary tube prior to transporting to Marshfield. Do not send the primary collection tube.
 
Stat orders will be run locally on the i-Stat.  Non-stat orders will be sent to Marshfield for analysis.
i-Stat:  Sample must be tested within 10 minutes of collection.
