Comments

Protease inhibitor tubes needed for this collection must be obtained from the sendout lab 722-5396. Separate specimens must be submitted when multiple tests are ordered. A winged collection set must be used. NOT RECOMMENDED: Filling collection tubes directly through a needle/tube-holder assembly increases the risk of chemical reflux back into the vein of the patient.
