Specimen containers are sterile, translucent containers that are used to collect, store and transport the specimen. They usually have labels on them to write the patient's name, doctor's name, date, and room number. A specimen is a sample of blood or body fluid that is taken to perform some medical tests. Therefore, specimen containers play an important role in specimen procurement and handling. A safely stored sample helps in obtaining a valid and correct laboratory test result. Accordingly, the specimen must be collected, labeled, handled, and transport properly for effective diagnosis specimen containers are of any number, shape, and size for collecting urine, stool, mucus, or other bodily fluids. Fluids are typically collected for testing at in-house or outside facilities such as a third-party hospital test site or a sterile testing room.
There are mainly two types of specimen containers are used that is blood collection containers and urine collection containers. Blood is usually drawn and collected in order to perform a variety of laboratory tests. Specimen are often sent to help diagnose any medical conditions. Different types of specimen tubes are used for collecting the blood the wrong tube may cause the rejection of the specimen by the laboratory. Blood collection tubes are come with a variety of colored stopper caps and may contain additives. Red top, this tube contains no additives. It is used for a variety of tests including blood typing and cross-matching. Tiger top tubes contain polymer gel and clot activator. Commonly used for blood chemistries. Lavender tops, these tubes are used primarily for obtaining complete blood counts. They contain EDTA an anticoagulant additive that chelates calcium. Green top tubes contain the anticoagulant heparin and are often used to obtain lithium and ammonia levels. Light blue top tubes contain sodium citrate an agent that removes calcium and is used to obtain pro-time and prothrombin. Light grey top, these specimen tubes contain sodium fluoride and potassium oxalates, antiglycolytic agents that preserve glucose for up to five days.
These tubes have labels on them to note the patient’s name, age, sex, and date to avoid complications. These tubes are come with top caps to avoid leakage and contamination. There are two types of urine collection containers that is urine collection cups and urine collection bottles. Urine collection cups are specific to urine collection. These specimen cups are used in any number of facilities including at-home nursing, hospitals, clinics, and other testing areas. Urine bottles are used by patients, home health, or medical facilities such as clinics and hospitals. Several bottles have a large capacity than others, however, these types are used for 24 hours storage before being discarded. There are many features that include creating multiple tests that determine a patient’s health. In order to fully benefit from any specimen sample, the containers are made using materials that are safe to handle, use and even store for at least 24 hours. Specimen collection containers have a specific use but are also utilized in multiple ways depending on who is using them.
Collecting any type of specimen serves several purposes for medical facilities. While each collection container serves a specific purpose, these hospital supplies can help quickly determine the cause or condition that’s able to help patients heal. They are convenient to use, it helps prevent misplacement of samples. These are the factors supporting the growth of the specimen container market. In addition to rising in population increases the demand for healthcare facilities and improvement in quality. The developing healthcare sector across the globe is propelling the specimen container market growth.
