Blood collection tubes with K2EDTA
Pack of 10 or 100
3 ml
13 x 75 mm
5.4 mg K2EDTA (spray)

K2EDTA is a liquid solution that is spray coated onto the interior surface of the BD Vacutainer® Plus Tube

EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) salts are used as an anticoagulant for whole blood intended for hematology tests, as EDTA preserves the cellular components of blood particularly well. EDTA counteracts clotting by forming complexes with metal ions such as calcium and consequently inhibits the cascade of clotting factors. The anticoagulant effect of EDTA is irreversible.

The EDTA concentration in BD Vacutainer® tubes is 1.8 mg per mL of whole blood when a sample of sufficient volume is collected, as recommended by the ICSH (International Council Society of Haematology).1 The ICSH recommends the use of EDTA dipotassium salt (K2EDTA) for hematology tests.

Blood collection tubes are available in various volumes: 3 ml, 4 ml, 6 ml
