Collection Patient Preparation:NA
Container:For specimen collection and preparation only use suitable tubes or collection containers. Only the specimens listed below were tested and found acceptable. Serum (free from hemolysis). Plasma: Li-heparin plasma. Plasma must be free from hemolysis and cells. Caution: Plasma from primary tubes handled according to the manufacturers' instructions can still contain cells, leading to implausibly high results. One option for these cases is an application with automatic sample pre‑dilution (ACN 8147). Alternatively it is recommended to transfer the plasma from the primary tube to a secondary sample tube.
