Blood Collection Systems and Accessories for Veterinary Medicine
Animal blood collection is carried out in veterinary medicine for diagnostic and other purposes. Blood drawing is also done to monitor the effectiveness of the applied treatment or for detoxification when performing phlebotomy. In order to take blood samples in veterinary medicine and to store them correctly, there are many various blood collection systems available.
Instruments for Veterinary Phlebotomy
Phlebotomy is the therapeutic method of blood drawing that is used for detoxifying the body. With this method, a large amount of blood (up to 10% of the total volume) is drained from the animal using special sets. These phlebotomy sets have a wide tube, just like common veterinary venesection sets, so that are higher volume of blood can flow through. The cannula with which the animal's vein is punctured is suited for higher flow rates and allows for a quicker phlebotomy procedure.
Blood Collection Systems for Veterinarians
The choice of a blood collection system depends on the animal species and the required parameters of the analysis. These are used for safe, vein-friendly blood drawing and award hygienic storage and uncomplicated sample transportation. Additionally, blood collection systems with aspiration and vacuum systems are available, such as the Monovettes (aspiration system) and vacutainers (vacuum system).
Blood Sedimentation Racks for the Veterinary Lab
Blood sedimentation racks are used to determine the blood sedimentation rate. If there is suspicion of an infectious process present, then the blood sedimentation values need to be determined. Special tubes are used for evaluating this parameter, which allow one to read the blood sedimentation rate.
Tourniquets for Large and Small Animals
In order to besser view and perceive the animal's veins during blood collection, tourniquets are used. These hinder venous blood flow and cause the blood vessel to swell. This makes it much easier to pierce the vein and prevent the blood from flowing back. For dogs and cats, it is preferred to apply the tourniquet above the elbow on an anterior limb. While large animals like horses and cattle require larger tourniquets, like chain tourniquets, smaller animals like cats and dogs only require tourniquets made from elastic materials.
