Taki krótki tekst:


Samples at Visit 1 and Visit 2 will be drawn by an indwelling cannula inserted in a forearm vein (IV line). In the supply sets, luer lock adapters and **wash tubes** (dry tubes, transparent red stopper, 2 mL) are provided to connect the Vacutainer system to an IV line. Using this adaptor, the normal Vacutainer technique can be used.

In view of the importance of the glucose analysis in this trial, a sample of free flowing blood is needed to perform the lab tests. Therefore, before taking the blood sample, a **‘wash’ tube** must be taken to clean the IV line. The wash tube of 2 mL (dry tube, transparent red stopper) can be used for local testing and does not have to be shipped to the central lab.
