These tubes are coated with K3EDTA for blocking coagulation cascade by binding calcium ions in the blood sample. K3 EDTA tubes should be inverted 8-10 times to assure complete mixing with blood. K3 EDTA tubes are used for direct sampling analysis since erythrocytes, leucocytes and thrombocytes are stable in EDTA anticoagulated blood for 24 hours. Blood smearing should be done within 3 hours after blood collection.
They are used in Routine Hematology tests including Complete Blood Count (CBC) Hemoglobin and Hematocrit, WBC count, RBC count Platelet count, and HbA1C test.
