BD Vaccutainer 4 ml Lith/Hep, 100/pk


Heparin tubes are used in clinical biochemistry.
The tube is coated with the anti-coagulant Lithium-Heparin.
Heparin activates antithrombin, i.e. blocking the coagulation cascade.
The Lithium Heparin in BD Vacutainer tubes is spray dried onto the inner walls to achieve the best possible solubility. For clinical chemistry, lithium heparin is generally preferred over sodium heparin.
To avoid micro-clotting, mix the Heparin tube with 8-10 inversions immediately after the blood sample has been taken.

BD has become aware that thiuram, a material found in the rubber stoppers of the BD Vacutainer® EDTA and the
BD Vacutainer®Lithium Heparin blood collection tubes, is not compatible with Anodic Stripping Voltammetry (ASV) methodology.
This methodology is known to be used within the Magellan LeadCare® testing systems.
The thiruam can sometimes release sulphur (sulfur)-containing gases, which may dissolve into the blood sample and bind the lead particles.
This chemical reaction makes it difficult for the Magellan lead tests to detect the correct amount of lead in a sample.
