How to use SAFECAP®

Place SAFECAP® up to the blood while ensuring the self-sealing plug is at the opposite end of the collection site. Make sure that the tube is held at a downward angle, this will allow capillary action to take place. Wipe outside of the tube with lint-free tissue to remove any blood.

Once collection is complete, hold the tube vertically with plug end down, or insert the tube into the tube organizer tray. Allow blood to contact self-sealing plug for at least 30 seconds. Please note that failure to follow this step may result in leakage of the sample while centrifuging.

Next, place the blood filled tube into the centrifuge according to the operator’s manual. Always place the sealed end toward the periphery. Now centrifuge for time recommended in operator’s manual. Read the results.

Remember to keep tubes capped and sealed in their vials when not in use. If normal filling of tubes is impaired by exposure to moist air, reseal the desiccant cap and allow 24 hours before reusing. The cap will dry the tubes and restore normal filling.
