Can the separated gel in the blood collection vessel still be used after drying?
The separation gel in the blood collection vessel is usually a special gel added to separate the serum and blood clot. The main function of this gel is to quickly separate plasma or serum from blood cells after blood collection for subsequent experiments and tests. However, if the separated gel in the blood collection vessel dries or other problems occur, the quality and availability of the collected blood samples may be affected.
The following are some frequently asked questions and answers about the drying or other problems of the separated gel in the blood collection vessel:
Question 1: Can the separated gel still be used when it is dry?
Answer: No, once the separated gel in the blood collection tube becomes dry or other abnormalities occur, the use of the blood collection tube should be avoided. The purpose of separating gel is to quickly separate plasma or serum to ensure the quality of blood samples. If the separated gel becomes dry, it will not be able to play its performance, resulting in the mixing of blood components, which will affect the accuracy of experimental results, especially for biochemical tests of plasma or serum that need to be clear.
Question 2: Why does the separation gel become dry?
Answer: The drying of the separated gel is usually caused by these reasons. (1) The blood collection tube may have expired or been stored incorrectly, resulting in the loss of the effectiveness of the separated gel. (2) If the blood collection tube is stored at an inappropriate temperature, the separation of gel will also be affected. (3) The blood collection tube is damaged during transportation or processing, resulting in drying or rupture of gel.
Question 3: How to avoid the problem of separating gel?
Answer: To avoid the problem of separating gel, we can take these measures (1) to check the validity of the blood collection tube and use the blood collection tube that has not expired. (2) When storing blood samples, it is necessary to follow the manufacturer's recommendations and usually store at a temperature of 2 ° C-8 ° C. (3) When collecting blood, transporting, and handling test tubes, it is important to handle them with care to prevent them from being knocked, ruptured, and air from entering.
In conclusion, if the separated gel in the blood collection tube becomes dry or other problems occur, the use of the blood collection tube should be stopped immediately, and another test tube should be selected to collect blood samples to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the experimental results. Once the affected blood collection vessel is used, it may lead to deviation in the results, which can have a negative impact on the patient's diagnosis and treatment.
