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 non-gel tubes must be centrifuged, plasma/serum removed, and aliquoted from cells within one hour.
Samples collected in gel tubes should be centrifuged within one hour of collection
Samples being sent from regional/outreach centers should not be sent tubes on gel, please aliquot and send.
 
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.
