Did you know that all test tubes used for blood tests aren’t the same?

I didn’t. I thought they were identical. I found out that some have stuff in them to preserve the contents when a friend had to get re-tested when they used the incorrect tube. There’s even one called a tiger tube!

The real name is vacutainers. This article describes the colors and contents.
