Preferred ContainerSST (Gold)
Other Specimen/ContainerPlasma in Lithium Heparin (Green),
Serum in Plain (Red)
Optimum Volume1 mL
Collection InstructionsFasting specimen preferred but not required. For a fasting glucose level, patient must be fasting for a minimum of 8 hours
After collection, avoid prolonged exposure to light
Lithium Heparin specimens: full draw required. (Underfilled
Li Heparin tubes may cause elevated bilirubin results)
Handling InstructionsKeep specimen &/or aliquot samples capped
Photosensitive. Cannot add test to light exposed specimens >6 hours old.
Transport RequirementsOahu: Ambient
Airline: Refrigerated
Specimen StabilityAmbient: 24 Hours
Refrigerated: 2 Days
Frozen: 2 Weeks
Once sample has been uncapped, it is stable refrigerated for 4 hours for CO2 testing.
Rejection CriteriaProlonged exposure to light, Hemolyzed, Uncapped or loosely capped specimens/aliquots, Specimen older than stability limits, Insufficient quantity
Avail. StatYES
