Description

The BD Plasma Count kit is intended for in vitro diagnostic use to identify and enumerate residual leucocytes (rWBCs), red blood cells (rRBCs), and platelets (rPLTs) in fresh human plasma, using flow cytometry.

Preparation And Storage

• Store the BD Plasma Count kit at 2° to 8° C. Do not use after the expiration date shown on the label.

• Avoid unnecessary exposure of the reagents to light.

• The BD Trucount tubes are packaged in two foil pouches. Each pouch contains 25 tubes and desiccant. Store BD Trucount tubes in their original foil pouch at 2° to 25° C. To avoid potential condensation, open the pouch only after it has reached room temperature and carefully reseal the pouch immediately after removing a tube. Examine the desiccant each time you open the pouch. If the desiccant has turned from blue to lavender, discard the remaining tubes. Use tubes within 1 hour after removal from the foil pouch. Once the pouch has been opened, the tubes are stable for 1 month. Do not use beyond the expiration date indicated on the packaging.
