Blood culture collection
Simplify collection, help minimize contamination, and facilitate appropriate blood volume during the pre-analytical phase with a full spectrum of specimen collection solutions.
Challenges in patient preparation and sample collection may result in pre-analytical errors, accounting for up to 70% of all clinical errors made in laboratory diagnostics.1
Used in combination, BD specimen collection solutions for blood culture are designed to minimize contamination, and promote ease and safety of specimen collection.2
