EDTA Tubes

EDTA tubes are for the examination of whole blood in haematology and are offered as either K2EDTA or K3EDTA tubes. EDTA binds the calcium ions and therefore blocks the coagulation cascade.

Correct mixing (8-10 inversions) of the EDTA tube immediately after the blood sample has been taken is extremely important to avoid microclotting.
