Hospitals trust BD as the world’s leading distributor of blood tubes. They created the BD Vacutainer to be among the most trusted tube for measuring blood serums. Each tube is silicone coated to activate blood clotting, allowing you to isolate the liquid part of the blood that contains hormones, electrolytes, proteins, lipids and so forth. This is the ideal setting for diagnostic testing. With the tube made of either sturdy glass or durable plastic, both are stable and resistant to various chemicals needed for the testing process. They are capable of being stored in the fridge or freezer without any damage to the serum tubes or samples as well.
As a safety precaution to those doing the testing, BD has also created the Hemogard closure. It is made of rubber and seals the Vacutainer tightly from inside and with a plastic shield to avoid contact with blood when un-stopped. The shield prevents blood from splattering and from collecting on the edge of the tube or lid. This minimizes risk of exposure to blood borne pathogens protecting the professional doing their job.
