Vacuum tubes are widely used in the clinical laboratory for routine tests. The clinical test has done between V-TUBE(AB MEDICAL, Gwangju, Korea) and BD tube(BD, Franklin Lakes,NJ,USA) for comparing performances in common clinical assay of hematology, chemistry and immuno assay tests in Chonnam University Hwasun Hospital(www.cnuhh.com/eng/).

Clinical test
A Comparison of V-TUBE with BD Vacutainer Tubes for Laboratory Tests
Period
2012. 8. 23 ~ 2012. 12. 31
Department
Laboratory Medicine
Methods
A total of 100 volunteers comprising 79 patients and 21 healthy volunteer were recruited and peripheral blood samples were collected with two brands of EDTA tubes and serum separating tubes. The samples from EDTA tubes were evaluated for 16
routine hematology tests. The SST samples were evaluated for 32 routine chemistry items and three thyroid hormone tests.
Conclusions
Newly developed V tube vacutainers provided a suitable alternative to BD tubes in common clinical laboratory.


Comparison result between BD Vacutainer Tubes and V-Tube™ with Clinical Test :
V- Tubes can be suitable alternatives to BD Tubes with more competitive price.

Background: Vacuum tubes are widely used in clinical laboratories for routine tests. We compared a newly developed V-tube (AB Medical, Korea)and BD tubes (BD, USA) in common clinical assays, i.e., hematological, chemical, and immunological tests.

Methods: In total, 100 volunteers comprising 79 patients and 21 healthy volunteers were recruited and peripheral blood samples were collected with 2 brands of EDTA tubes and serum-separating tubes (SSTs). EDTA-tube samples were evaluated using 16 routine hematological tests. The SST samples were analyzed for 32 routine chemical parameters and 3 thyroid hormones. The results were statistically analyzed using the paired ttest and Bland-Altman plot. In addition, the stability of each analyte in 2 brands of vacutainers was evaluated. The results of the hematological tests at t=0 hr were compared with those at t=72±2 hr, and the results of the chemical parameters and thyroid hormones at t=0 hr were compared with those at t=72±2 hr and t=168±2 hr for each tube.

Results: Paired t-test analysis revealed that the test results of 16 routine hematological parameters, 32 routine chemical parameters, and 3 thyroid hormones showed clinically allowable differences between the 2 brands of vacuum tubes (t =0 hr). The results obtained when using V-tubes showed a statistically significant correlation with those obtained when using BD tubes. The stability of each analyte was similar in both vacuum tubes. Except for 10 parameters (white blood cell count, mean corpuscular volume, basophils [ %], mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, monocytes [ %], phospholipid, sodium, potassium, chloride, and free T4), all parameters showed significant but clinically allowable differences with regard to storage duration.

Conclusions: The newly developed V-tube vacutainers provide a suitable alternative to BD tubes in common clinical laboratories.

Key Words: V-tube, BD tube, Comparison
