These tubes contain an inert gel barrier and spray-dried lithium heparin additive. The inert barrier separates the plasma from the blood cells during centrifugation, preventing contamination of the plasma. For example, in plasma certain analytes such as potassium, phosphorus and glucose should be separated from the cells within a few hours, otherwise the results will be significantly impacted.
The main advantages of gel tubes versus non-gel tubes are:
- Stable barrier between plasma and clotted blood during transportation and storage, therefore better analyte stability.
- Better sample quality.
- Optimization of the work flow: short centrifugation time, sample processing and archiving in the primary tube.
- No requirement for secondary tubes, reducing the possibility of misidentification.
