TUBE TYPE POSTER

We also offer a Tube Type Poster in PDF form to help guide phlebotomists in choosing the correct color tube for many tests. This chart also includes the proper order of draw, and notes if there's any special handling required for certain tests.  This poster is printable on 8.5x11 paper in landscape, and a color printer is recommended. To receive a large professionally printed poster, contact a Technical Service Representative in the Lab Sales Department.
