HEMATO-CLAD Hematocrit Tubes combine the precision of glass with the safety provided by a Mylar overwrap. Now, for the first time, you can give your laboratory staff enhanced safety with no compromise in accuracy. With HEMATO-CLAD Tubes the chance of contamination due to glass fragments or aerosols is greatly reduced. Accidental breakage is significantly reduced particularly when pressing the tube into sealing clay. In the event of breakage, the Mylar wrapping will help contain the sample (blood) and provides an added layer of protection against cuts from broken glass.
