Serum separator tubes, often referred to as SST tubes, are designed for blood collection and separation of serum from whole blood. These tubes contain a gel separator at the bottom, which upon centrifugation, forms a barrier between the serum and the cellular components of the blood, allowing for easy isolation of serum. Serum is the liquid portion of blood that remains after clotting and the removal of blood cells and clotting factors. SST tubes are commonly used in clinical laboratories for various diagnostic tests that require serum, such as biochemical assays, hormone assays, serology tests, and certain infectious disease testing. They are particularly useful for tests where clear, cell-free serum is needed for accurate analysis. SST tubes facilitate efficient and convenient processing of blood samples, providing reliable results for a wide range of medical investigations.
