​Blood Smear ​Glass Slide
Collection Processing Instructions

​​Serum must be separated from clot within 1 hour of collection.

Draw blood into EDTA vacuum tube. Invert sample gently 5-6 times to facilitate mixing and prevent coagulation.

Test Information

Optimally, refrigerated serum should be analyzed within 3-5 days of collection for most chemistry assays.

Analyze hematology specimen within 48 hours of collection.

Reticulocyte count performed only if hematocrit is < 33.0%

Platelet counts are given only if the platelet result from the analyzer is valid. If result is not valid, an estimated platelet range is given. If an actual platelet count is needed, the platelet count will need to be ordered in addition to the CBC.
