Today, Wuhan New Desheng Material Technology Co., Ltd. will introduce some common questions about the application of lithium heparin in blood collection tubes.
FAQ 1: What does it check for blood collection tubes with lithium heparin?
The normal applications of blood collection tubes with lithium heparin is blood rheology tests, blood cell volume tests and blood gas tests (Pls note: lithium heparin we produced are raw materials,it cannot do blood gas analysis). It also can be used for the detection after hemodialysis and other specific items such as arterial blood gas analysis, detection of electrolytes, calcium ions, etc.
FAQ 2: What is the grade of lithium heparin applied in blood collection tubes?
Lithium heparin applied in blood collection tubes need biochemical grade, like the powder we produced by Desheng. And the potency per milligram is greater than or equal to 150IU.
FAQ 3: Do the blood collection tubes added with lithium heparin need to be dried?
The blood collection tube added with lithium heparin must be completely dried, because lithium heparin is a mucopolysaccharide substance, which can easily breed bacteria in the tubes.
FAQ 4: What is the normal operation after lithium heparin anti-coagulation tubes collecting blood samples?
Under normal circumstances, the tubes with green cap is lithium heparin anti-coagulation tubes. In order to ensure sufficient blood anti-coagulation, it must be gently inverted and mixed 5 to 8 times as soon as possible after blood collection, otherwise the blood will coagulate. Vigorous can cause hemolysis with blood cells rupture.
FAQ 5: Can lithium heparin be used with other blood collection tube additives?
Lithium heparin can be used with sodium fluoride for blood glucose testing, and with serum separation gel for electrolyte testing,which is to check whether the content of electrolytes in the body is normal, mainly including potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, etc. The activities and metabolism of biological cells must be carried out in a liquid state. Under normal circumstances, the fluctuation range of body fluids and components is small, so as to keep the volume, electrolyte, osmotic pressure, and pH of body fluids relatively stable.
The above are answers for common questions that most people confuse about the application of lithium heparin in blood collection tubes. Hubei New Desheng Material Technology Co., Ltd. is a manufacturer for a series of blood collection tube additives. We have rich experience in R&D.Please feel free to inquire if you have any requirements.
