What is BD Vacutainer used for?
A vacutainer blood collection tube is a sterile glass or plastic test tube with a colored rubber stopper that creates a vacuum seal within the tube and makes it easier to draw a predetermined volume of fluid. Vacutainer technology was developed by Joseph Kleiner in 1947 and is currently being marketed by Becton Dickinson (B-D). Vacutainer tubes may contain additional substances that preserve blood for processing in a medical laboratory. Vacutainers have the advantage that they are manufactured with additives that allow multiple pipes to be removed easily and have a lower chance of hemolysis.
