Blood should be collected in two (Red-top)SST(R) Serum
Separation Tubes or in two sterile tubes using Plasma in EDTA
(Lavender-top) or a (White-top) PPT Vacutainer(TM) plasma preparation
tube.
Separate plasma from whole blood within 6 hours of collection
by centrifugation at 800 to 1600 x g for 20 minutes at room
temperature. Transfer the plasma from each tube into a properly
identified, polypropylene screw cap vial and ship frozen.
Please note: Plasma must be removed from centrifuged PPT tubes and
transferred to specified screw cap vials and submitted frozen.
Specimens will no longer be acceptable if plasma is still in original
collection tube, EVEN IF SEPARATED BY CENTRIFUGATION.
Specimens collected using heparin as the anticoagulant are unsuitable
for this test.
