Vacutainer® Citrate Tubes with 3.2% buffered sodium citrate solution are used for routine coagulation studies. Venipuncture sampling system which enables sampling directly into a sterile tube One-handed manipulation permits fixing the vein with the free hand System composed of…
Contains buffered tri-sodium citrate solution Color-coded rings in caps indicate draw volume Citrate concentrations of either 3.2% (0.109M) or 3.8% (0.129M) are available, with a mixing ratio of one part citrate to nine parts blood. Sold by: 1000 Per Case; Contains: Buffered Sodium Citrate (0.109M, 3.2%). Optional: Theophylline, Adenosine, Dipyridamole (0.3 mL) Color: Light Blue PT Tube (Sodium Citrate 3.2%)is mainly used for the test of blood coagulation mechanism. It is filled with buffered tri-sodium citrate solution, and citrate concentrations of either 0.109 mol/I (3.2%) or 0.129mo1/(3.8%) are available. The choice of the concentration depends upon the policies of the laboratories. This light blue top sodium citrate tube, or Coagulation Tube, is used for examination of coagulation parameters. Coagulation tubes contain a buffered sodium citrate solution. It is available with a citrate concentration of 0.109 mol/l (3.2%) or 0.129 mol/l (3.8%). The mixing ratio is: 1 part citrate solution to 9 parts blood. BD Vacutainer® Citrate Tubes with 3.2% buffered sodium citrate solution are used for routine coagulation studies. ClosureType/Color: BD Hemogard/ Light Blue Additive/Concentration: Buffered Sodium Citrate (0.109M, 3.2%) Sodium citrate (0.102 M, 0.129 M citrate, buffered and nonbuffered) at a ratio of nine parts blood to one part anticoagulant is the anticoagulant typically chosen for platelet aggregation testing. Laboratories involved in aggregation testing do not use Vacutainers to obtain blood due to the concern that the platelets may become activated by the Citrate Buffer (pH 3.0 to 6.2) preparation guide and recipe. Recipe can be automatically scaled by entering desired final volume. Citrate buffers can be used for RNA isolation, due to its ability to prevent base hydrolysis. The buffer is also used for antigen detection by breaking cross-links between antigens and any substances in its fixation
The Effect of 3.2% and 3.8% Sodium Citrate on Specialized
Citrate for coagulation Made of clear polypropylene, supplied capped and labeled. Our sodium citrate, 3.8% or 3.2% concentration, buffered and sterile has a ratio citrate: blood 1:9 and is highly recommended for coagulation tests. Buffered to pH.
