Venipuncture Tubes

Different venipuncture tubes are used for different things. There are 1 to 3 colors per tube meaning 3 different colored tubes can be doing the same thing. You just got to know your colors. I will be labeling out some information here on venipuncture tubes for example you might wonder what kind of tube has sodium citrate the kind of tube that has sodium citrate is the blue tube. So now you know what the blue tube has it has sodium citrate. You will learn more about phlebotomy and venipuncture tubes by reading other blog posts on this blog explaining phlebotomy tube colors and such but venipuncture tubes are a little different so just research as much as you can or take a class on venipuncture tubes so you can know what each color tube is used for and what is inside of each of the blue topped or different color topped venipuncture tubes.

Now I have talked about the blue venipuncture tube and you might be wondering what is this blue tube with sodium citrate used for well it is used for coagulation studies. These studies are important for the person and to see how the person is doing. That is why it is so important to have venipuncture done because you never know when you are going to need more blood work done unless you start getting blood work done for yourself regularly. I think at minimum once every 6 months you should get a blood test done using either skin puncture or venipuncture to check if you are healthy but I also recommend you talking to your doctor to see what is right for your situation.
