It is important to understand that venous blood is used for almost all types of research – general clinic, biochemistry, hormones, allergology, etc. However, the procedure for taking blood is not the most pleasant for many.
To prevent health problems from complicating your life and your children, get tested regularly. But the procedure for taking blood is not the most pleasant for many. Realizing this, CITILAB has chosen the best technologies available on the laboratory services market. Vein blood is drawn using sterile, disposable BD Vacutainer® systems . They allow you to collect biomaterial for research quickly, painlessly, preventing the risk of contracting viral hepatitis, HIV, ensuring the highest quality of diagnosis.
It is important to understand that venous blood is used for almost all types of research – general clinic, biochemistry, hormones, allergology, etc. Most of them are completed in CITILAB within 1 business day *!
For many people, having a finger prick when collecting capillary blood can be quite painful. This is especially true for young children.
All needles are treated with silicone, so that venous blood collection using the vacuum system takes less than a minute. When collecting capillary blood, especially in children, it is difficult to achieve correct fixation of the finger due to the child’s mobility, which prevents the correct calm blood flow, lengthening the procedure.
When taking blood from a vein, a fixed aseptic dressing is applied to protect the wound from infection outside the laboratory. You and your child are always protected!
In children of the first year of life, a puncture of a finger with a lancet carries a high risk of damage to the periosteum and the development of osteomyelitis in the future. Taking venous blood is atraumatic for patients of any age.
Venous blood is stored longer than capillary blood. In addition, in CITILAB, all collected biomaterials are stored for 7 days, which allows additional orders for studies if necessary.
The study of venous blood gives more reliable results. The blood obtained from a finger is a mixture of blood from capillaries (arterioles, venules ) and interstitial fluid, which leads to a limitation in the accuracy of the results and poor reproducibility (results obtained with an interval in time in different laboratories can vary significantly).
The chance of rejection of a venous blood sample is minimized as the sample is stored in a test tube. When capillary blood is taken, the formation of microclots due to the ingress of thromboplastin is large. This makes the sample unsuitable for research and requires a repeated procedure, which can be psychologically difficult to endure.
* Some complex analyzes by technology require several stages of execution and therefore the result can be obtained only after a few days.
