CLINITUBES capillary tubes

Radiometer offer's a palette of capillary tubes for low-volume PH, blood gas, oximetry and metabolite analysis. The capillary tubes come in a variety of sizes to match the sample-volume requirements of different analyzers.

-safeCLINITUBES are made of plastic, reducing the risk of breakage.
-CLINITUBES tubes are made of glass.
Capillary cap seals the sample
We have designed our capillary tubes to be free of sharp edges with rounded ends. Our capillary cap helps secure sealing and minimizes the risk of blood spillage. The capillary tubes come with a mixing wire and magnet to facilitate mixing of the sample.
Pre-heparinized tubes reduce risk of clotting
Our capillary tubes are preheparinized with dry electrolyte-balanced heparin or high concentration sodium heparin. This reduces the risk of clotting and helps secure reliable results, reducing bias on electrolytes results.

Capillary cap guarantees safe sealing

We have designed our capillary tubes with rounded ends to increase safety for patients and staff.  Our capillary cap secures safe sealing and minimizes the risk of blood spillage, helping protect your staff. The capillary tubes come with a mixing wire and magnet to facilitate thorough mixing of the sample.

Unique surface treatment allows fast filling

Capillary samples are often collected in stressful situations, making it difficult to fill a capillary tube with a single skin puncture. The unique surface treatment of safeCLINITUBES capillary tubes allows fast filling, making sampling procedures easier for clinicians and less stressful for patients.

Pre-heparinized tubes reduce risk of clotting

All our capillary tubes are preheparinized with dry electrolyte-balanced heparin. This significantly reduces the risk of clotting and helps secure reliable results without any bias on electrolytes.
