Sample Collection / Anticoagulant Tubes

Short info

Haematologic Technologies Inc. (HTI) manufactures high quality, plasma derived coagulation proteins, antibodies, factor deficient plasmas and blood collection tubes intended for in vitro research use.

Many non-routine tests and applications which require the collection of blood or other body fluids

also require the use of special anti-coagulant or proteinase inhibitor cocktails to preserve the integrity of the sample. Good examples of such tests include the measurements of Fibrinopeptide-A (FPA), Prothrombin Fragment 1•2 (F1•2), Fibrinogen Degradation Products (FDP) and the Thrombin/Antithrombin III complex (TAT), all of which are highly influenced by persistent protease activity in blood or plasma samples.

The SCAT series of collection tubes (Sample Collection/Anticoagulant Tubes) were developed specifically to minimize in vitro artifact by rapidly quenching unwanted protease activity. SCAT tubes are carefully formulated to yield a reproducible concentration of inhibitors with rapid dissolution properties. The tubes are evacuated and stoppered under controlled conditions so that the tubes will automatically fill to the proper volume.
