Processing Details:
Collect into chilled or pre-frozen plastic lavender-top (EDTA) tube, noting the time of collection. After venipuncture, immediately mix specimen by inversion several times to ensure complete mixture. Separate plasma from cells by centrifugation. Separate plasma into a LabCorp screw-capped purple frozen plastic transport tube and freeze within 15 minutes of collection.

To avoid delays in turnaround time when requesting multiple tests on frozen samples, submit a separate frozen aliquot for each test requested.
