BD Microtainer® tubes with BD Microgard™ closure have an integrated collection scoop, along with a wider diameter (8 mm) for ease of collection and improved mixing ensuring a quality sample is collected.
Additionally closure helps protect the healthcare worker from exposure to potentially infected blood with the 'twist assist' cap which reduces the risk of splatter upon removal of the cap.
It can also be used with a tube extender to increase the length to 75 mm, for use in 13×75 mm racks. BD Microtainer® tubes are also available with Flotop collector and closure plug.
