Product Information

The BD Vacutainer® Barricor blood collection tubes with mechanical separator comprised of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) & High Density Polypropylene are used for plasma analysis. The PET tubes are available in a range of sizes and can be identified by a green cap.

This PET tube has a 3.0ml draw volume and measures 13mm diameter and 75mm height with a Lithium Heparin additive within the tube. The green cap has the BD Hemogard™ tube closure, designed to protect from blood which may splatter when the tube is opened. The rubber stopper is recessed inside the plastic shield, preventing exposure to blood present on the stopper.

The main advantages of mechanical separation versus gel:
- Superior sample quality than Plasma gel tube - 47% fewer platelets versus BD PSTTM II.
- Separation in 3 minutes at 4000 g.
- Eliminates the risk of gel contamination of the sampling probe, causing probe blockages, analyser downtime and costly maintenance.
- Reduced temperature sensitivity in storage.
- Greater range of analytes can be tested in a single tube e.g. therapeutic drugs.
- Longer stability of analytes versus current plasma gel separator tubes.

Centrifugation conditions:
4000 g for 3 minutes, 3000 g for 5 minutes, 2500 g for 7 minutes, 1850 g for 10 minutes.

To avoid micro-clotting, mix the BD Barricor tube with 8-10 inversions immediately after the blood sample has been taken.

This product is provided in cases of 1000 tubes (10 packs of 100 tubes).
