The ClearCell® FX1 System is compatible with most blood collection tubes, including EDTA, Cell-free DNA BCT® from Streck and CellSave tubes. An EDTA blood collection tube can be used if the blood sample can be processed within 24 hours. Otherwise, Streck Cell-free DNA BCT® would be recommended as the blood sample can be stored up to 72 hours. Blood samples are to be stored at 4 degree celsius.
The choice of blood collection tube will depend on the preferred downstream assays. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
