Test Category
Specimen Requirements
Specimen Type Preferred Container/Tube Acceptable Container/Tube Specimen Volume Specimen Minimum Volume
(allows for 1 repeat)
Plasma Citrated Blue Top Tube (BTT) 1.0 mL 400 uL
Collection Processing Instructions

All blue top tubes must be filled to the capacity indicated on the tube for accurate analysis.

Centrifuge the Blue Top Tube and remove plasma. Transfer plasma to a clear plastic transfer tube, freeze within 1 hour of collection.

Label tube and smears with animal’s name.

Specimen Stability Information
Specimen Type Temperature Time
​Plasma ​Frozen ​6 months
Rejection Criteria
​Frozen Unspun Blue Top Tubes
​Clotted Blue Top Tubes
​Insuffciently Filled Draw Tube
​Specimen Contaminated with IV Fluids
 
Interference
The blood to anticoagulant ratio is critical for accurate test results. If an inadequate blood sample is taken, results will be falsely prolonged.
