EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) blood tubes are commonly used in medical laboratories for blood collection and preservation of whole blood samples for various diagnostic tests. EDTA acts as an anticoagulant by binding to calcium ions, thus preventing blood clotting. These tubes are typically lavender or purple in color. These tubes offer several advantages, including accurate preservation of blood cell morphology, stability of cell populations, and prevention of clotting during sample processing. They are essential tools in clinical laboratories for conducting a wide range of hematological and diagnostic tests, aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of various medical conditions.
