VACUETTE® EDTA tubes are used for determinations in EDTA whole blood for haematology, immunohaematology or for the molecular biological identification of viruses, parasites and bacteria after centrifugation and plasma for clinical chemistry.
EDTA tubes from Greiner Bio-One are available in three versions: K2E K2EDTA, K2E K2EDTA Separator and K3E K3 EDTA.
The additive potassium EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) contained in the tube interferes with calcium and thus blockades the coagulation cascade.
Our purple and pink top EDTA blood tubes are primarily used for drawing blood for hematology studies. See our available K2 EDTA Separator blood tubes, K2 EDTA blood tubes and K3 EDTA blood tubes in a variety of sizes and types.
Greiner Bio-One manufactures high-quality blood collection tubes under the VACUETTE® Blood Tube brand name. Most VACUETTE® Blood Tubes contain chemical additives, which in combination with a pre-determined vacuum, guarantee the correct mixing ratio of blood sample to additive.
Reliable results make VACUETTE® Blood Collection Tubes the optimal collection product for analysis with all current instrumentation. All tubes are CE marked.
