When using a winged blood collection set for venipuncture and a coagulation (citrate) tube is the first specimen to be drawn, a discard tube should be drawn first. The discard tube must be used to fill the blood collection set tubing’s “dead space” with blood but the discard tube does not need to be completely filled. This important step will ensure maintenance of the proper blood-to-additive ratio of the blood specimen. The discard tube should be a nonadditive or coagulation tube.
