Vacutainer® SST™ Tubes (serum separator tube)
BD Vacutainer® SST™ Blood Collection Tubes contain spray-coated silica to aid in clotting and a polymer gel for serum separation. Samples processed in these tubes are used for serum determinations in chemistry, blood donor screening and infectious disease testing.* BD Vacutainer® SST™ Tubes provide an efficient means of serum sample preparation and help to improve laboratory workflow.
* The performance characteristics of these tubes have not been established for infectious disease testing in general; therefore, users must validate the use of these tubes for their specific assay-instrument/reagent system combinations and specimen storage conditions
