Vacutainer Heparin Tubes
BD Vacutainer Heparin Tubes and Blood Collection Tubes are used for plasma determinations in chemistry. Spray-coated with either lithium heparin or sodium heparin, these blood collections tubes are clinically recognized for their efficacy, ease of use and performance.
Blood collection tubes offered include BD Vacutainer tubes with a conventional stopper and a Vacutainer tube with a Hemogard closure. Both incorporate tube inversions that ensure mixing of anticoagulant (heparin) with blood to prevent clotting. Tubes with a BD Hemogard closure protect lab users biohazards on the stopper or around the outer rim of the tube. The rubber stopper of a BD Hemogard closure is recessed inside the plastic shield; the blood sample remains isolated from the user. This shield also protects against blood splattering when opening tube.
BD is the worldwide leader and inventor of evacuated blood collection tubes. These reliable blood collection tubes help reduce the potential for tube breakage and specimen spillage, reducing accidents that expose the user to bloodborne pathogens.
