Hi all,

I'm translating a medical text for a study about drawing blood. I'm stuck on what this is - some type of vial for blood tests?

Here's the whole sentence for context:

non-additive tube would work as well:
"Only blood culture tubes, glass non-additive serum tubes, or
plastic serum tubes without clot activator may be collected before the coagulation tube."

  • Three ml of CSF was obtained at the time of lumbar puncture, together with a single venous blood sample drawn into an additive-free tube.
  • Both the serum in the primary SST tube and a serum aliquot in an additive-free tube were stored at -20°C.
