OBJECTIVES BD Canada recently released a blood collection tube with a novel mechanical separator called the Barricor. We evaluated this tube as an alternate sample type for cardiac troponin I (cTnI) testing using the Beckman Coulter AccuTnI+3 assay. DESIGN AND METHODS 3014 paired patient specimens (Barricor, plasma separator tube or PST) were obtained from the emergency departments and cardiac care units of nine hospitals in and around Edmonton, Alberta. After centrifugation, each plasma… CONTINUE READING
