Applications

Blood collection and stabilization for:

  • analysis of circulating tumour cells
  • Cancer genomic research
  • Immunophenotyping of white blood cells
  • HIV genomic research

Benefits

  • Maintains white blood cell cluster of differentiation (CD) markers at room temperature for convenient transport and storage
  • Prevents effect of time, storage conditions on sample integrity
  • Allows samples to be batched to improve laboratory efficiency

The Blood STASIS™-CTC is a plastic, evacuated tube used for collection, anti-coagulation, stabilization, transport, and storage of venous whole blood as well as for the preservation of circulating tumour cells at room temperature for convenient transport and storage. The Blood STASIS™-CTC Tube has a non-fixative additive inside, that helps maintain the viability of blood cells including circulating tumor cells (CTCs); and peripheral mononucleosis blood cells (PMBCs- ie B cells, and T cells).

  • CTCs are stable for up to 7 days at 4oC to 37oC
  • PMBCs are stable up to 3 days 4oC to 37oC
This is a short overview of the protocol, for detailed protocols, please refer to PRODUCT DOCUMENTS

Procedure for Specimen Collection
  • Blood STASIS™ - CTC tube should be properly labeled and be at room temperature before use.
  • Collection of blood in the tube is done using the SOP for venipuncture technique used in customer’s laboratory.
Preventing back flow
  1. To guard against back flow, observe the precautions mentioned in our protocol.
  2. Fill Blood STASIS™ - CTC tube to the indicated line on the tube.
  3. Invert the tube 8 to 10 times gently to allow efficient stabilization of specimen.
