Specimen Requirements
Specimen Type Preferred Container/Tube Acceptable Container/Tube Specimen Volume Specimen Minimum Volume
(allows for 1 repeat)
​Whole Blood ​EDTA Lavendar Top Tube (LTT) ​2.0 mL ​1.0 mL
​Blood Smear ​Glass Slide
Plasma ​Citrated Blue Top Tube (BTT) ​1.0 mL ​200 uL
​Serum ​Red Top Tube (RTT) ​Serum Separator Tube (SST) ​1.0 mL ​450 uL
​Plasma ​Fluoride/Oxalate Gray Top Tube (GYTT) ​0.5 mL ​60 uL
Collection Processing Instructions

• Label all tubes and smears with animal’s name
• All blue top tubes must be filled to capacity for accurate analysis.
• Centrifuge the blue top tube and remove plasma, freeze within 1 hour of collection
• Draw blood into EDTA vacuum tube. Invert sample gently 5-6 times to facilitate mixing and prevent coagulation.
• Prepare 1-2 peripheral blood smears. DO NOT REFRIGERATE
• Refrigeration is not recommended for Protime as it activates Factor VII and invalidates results.
• Serum must be separated from clot within 1 hour of collection.

Test Information

·         Analyze specimen within 24-48 hours of collection.

·         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.

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