The Answer would be Lavender. Yellow contains no additive resulting in being sterile, Lavender contains EDTA and used for testing WBC and RBC; basically the blood cells so it would result in drawing the whole blood, Green contains Heparin and i currently can't recall the test it is used for, and for Red it is used as a Serum Seperater Tube that contains the thixotropic gel at the bottom used to seperate plasma from the blood
