D-Vac mini tubes are intended for collection, transportation and processing of capillary blood for testing of serum, plasma or whole blood in the clinical laboratory. The D-Vac mini tubes consist of a tube with capillary and/or a funnel so as to be used as a system. The capillary and funnel are used to transfer the blood to the tube. D-Vac mini tubes are available with color coded caps for easy identification according to CLSI coding recommendations. The D-Vac mini tubes are made of plastic and contain additive in varying concetrations.
Additive choice depends on the analytical test method selected. The manufacturer of the test reagents and/or instrument on which the test is performed these specifications.
The mini tubes are also available as 13x75, which is easier to centrifuge.
