Product Introduction

What is ACD in yellow top tube?  

Yellow-top tube: Contains acid citrate dextrose (ACD) solution. Use: ACD whole blood. Send whole blood in a yellow-top tube. Royal blue-top tube: Contains sodium EDTA for trace metal studies.

Can ACD tubes be used for blood cultures?

Note that there are two yellow top Vacutainer tubes, one containing ACD, the other SPS. Only SPS is acceptable for blood culture. Specimens submitted in ACD will be rejected.

What kind of acid is in ACD solution?

ACD Solution A contains disodium citrate (22.0g/L), citric acid (8.0g/L) and dextrose (24.5g/L) ACD Solution B contains disodium citrate (13.2g/L), citric acid (4.8g/L) and dextrose (14.7g/L) Blood is drawn directly from the vein into the evacuated sterile collection tubes.

What kind of tube does ACD use?

Lingen provides a variety of test tubes to meet your professional testing requirements. ACD has two formulations. Both solutions are composed of disodium citrate, citric acid and glucose.

Which is better K2 EDTA or K3 EDTA?

Dipotassium EDTA and dipotassium EDTA; that is the only difference. However, when you refer to PCR, I believe that you are talking about the low concentration present in the enzyme (0.1mM). At such minuscule concentrations, K2 and K3 have no significant difference.
