Blood sampling equipment. Range of equipment used for collecting blood samples for analysis. Blood is analysed for levels of components such as cholesterol and glucose, for pathogens like bacteria and viruses, and to determine a person's blood group. The tubes with coloured caps are part of the Vacuette blood collection system from Greiner Bio One, which draws venous blood into a vacuum inside the tube. The colour-coding indicates the use of the tubes: purple (haematology), yellow (special diagnostics), grey (glucose determination), blue (coagulation analysis).
