We currently use BD EDTA tubes in our transfusion service and are considering switch to Greiner tubes. Just wondering if anyone has experienced any positives/negatives with one manufacturer's tube over the other whether it be in manual testing or with automation.

Why are you switching?

The usual reason.....push from upper management for cost savings. Our phlebotomy staff evaluated Greiner blood collection products 2 yrs ago and were sufficiently dissatisfied so that the process did not even make it to the testing area. Now the push is on again.

it was other way around for us. I validated Greiner tubes for blood bank use but central supply did not want to buy just for blood bank so we did not switch.
