Lithium Heparin Tubes

The inner wall of the SHIFA VAC Heparin tube is coated with spray-dried lithium, sodium, or ammonium heparin and are used for plasma determinations in chemistry. Heparin acts as an anticoagulant as it develops an antithrombin complex. This complex inhibits thrombin and thus prevents coagulation. Heparin Tubes are also available with gel separator.

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