Specimen Collection Criteria
Collect: Five 5 mL Green-top Sodium Heparin tubes on the DONOR and one Gold-top SST tube on the RECIPIENT.
Physician Office/Draw Specimen Preparation
Maintain specimens at room temperature (20-26°C or 68-78.8°F) and transport to the Laboratory immediately. Do not store specimens.
Preparation for Courier Transport
Transport: Heparin and SST tubes, at room temperature (20-26°C or 68-78.8°F).
