Due to a nation wide shortage of Lt green PST (Li heparin) plasma separator vial/tubes, to conserve our limited supply, we are asking that clients collect specimens in Gold serum separator (SST) vial/tubes whenever possible.

If Lithium heparin is preferred, but serum is acceptable, serum will be listed as an alternate specimen type in the test catalog.
