BD Vacutainer® PPT™ Plasma Preparation Tube

Product Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow


BD Vacutainer® PPT™ is a closed system allowing separation and storage of undiluted EDTA plasma in the primary blood collection tube. It is intended for the purposes of molecular diagnostic testing.

PPT™ is an evacuated, sterile blood collection tube that contains an inert gel and spray-dried K2EDTA anticoagulant for achieving plasma separation. When the sample-filled tube is subjected to centrifugation, the gel migrates and forms a physical barrier between the plasma and most of the cellular elements. Since the tube uses spray-dried K2EDTA as opposed to liquid additives, the plasma obtained is undiluted.

Preparation And Storage

Store unfilled tubes at 4-25ºC. Limited excursion temperatures up to 40ºC, for a cumulative time not to exceed 10 days, are acceptable.
