Gel separator/ clot activator separator/ Gel lithium heparin Thrombin Sodium citrate Sodium heparin None

Clot activators shorten the time for clot formation. The gel forms a barrier btwn cells and serum. Heparin prevents clotting. Gel separator prevents cell contamination. Thrombin is a clot activator for faster clot formation, usu. w/ 5 min. Binds calcium Inhibits thrombin formation. None

Tubes should be inverted 5 times to expose the blood to the activator. Should be inverted 8 times. ratio of blood to 4:1 coagulant. Less than 0.1 mcg/mL of lead.

Most chemistry testing. Not suitable for blood banking testing. Potassium determinations. STAT chemistries. Westergren sedimentation rates Lead determinations. Used for blood banking.
