Gel-barrier tube is preferred (send entire tube). Red-top tube or green-top (heparin) tube is acceptable.
Draw blood in gel-barrier tube and centrifuge. If red-top tube or green-top tube is used, centrifuge within 45 minutes of draw, remove the serum or plasma, and place in a transport tube and tightly stopper the tube.
