Answer

See the list below:

  • Specimen: Plasma

  • Container: Blue-top vacuum tube

  • Collection method: Routine venipuncture

All samples must be sent in a sealed, leak-proof container marked with a biohazard sticker to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety standards.
