Specimen Requirements
Specimen Type Preferred Container/Tube Acceptable Container/Tube Specimen Volume Specimen Minimum Volume
(allows for 1 repeat)
​Serum ​Red Top Tube (RTT) ​Serum Separator Tube (SST) ​1.0 mL ​436 uL
​Whole Blood ​EDTA Lavender Top Tube (LTT) ​3.0 mL ​0.5 mL
​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.

Prepare 1-2 peripheral blood smears. DO NOT REFRIGERATE

Test Information

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

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.
