Common Phlebotomy Orders And Tube Types - Quiz

A quiz about the common blood tests ordered.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    ABO and RH Blood Type:

    • A.

      Red and Lavender

    • B.

      SST

    • C.

      Grey

    • D.

      Light Blue

    • E.

      Royal Blue

    Correct Answer
    A. Red and Lavender
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Red and Lavender. This suggests that the ABO and RH blood types can be determined using these two colors. Red is commonly associated with blood, and it is possible that it represents the ABO blood type. Lavender, on the other hand, may represent the RH blood type. The colors could be used to visually categorize and distinguish different blood types in a laboratory or medical setting.

    Albumin:

    • A.

      Red

    • B.

      Lavender

    • C.

      SST

    • D.

      Grey

    • E.

      Green

    Correct Answer
    C. SST
    Explanation
    The correct answer is SST because SST stands for Serum Separator Tube, which is a type of blood collection tube that contains a gel separator. This gel helps to separate the serum from the blood cells during the centrifugation process. Albumin is a protein found in the blood, and it is commonly measured in clinical laboratories. Therefore, the SST tube would be the appropriate choice for collecting a blood sample for albumin testing.

    • D.

      Royal Blue

    • E.

      SST

    Correct Answer
    E. SST

    Alk Phosphatase (Alk Phos):

    • A.

      Green

    • B.

      Lavender

    • C.

      Red

    • D.

      SST

    • E.

      Light Blue

    Correct Answer
    D. SST
    Explanation
    The correct answer is SST because SST stands for serum separator tube, which is a type of blood collection tube that contains a gel separator. This gel separates the serum (the liquid part of the blood) from the other components, allowing for easy testing of various substances, including Alk Phosphatase. The other options mentioned (Green, Lavender, Red, Light Blue) are different types of blood collection tubes used for specific tests, but they are not suitable for testing Alk Phosphatase.

    Anti-Nuclear Antibodies (ANA):

    • D.

      Light Blue

    • E.

      Grey

    Correct Answer
    B. Red
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Red" because Anti-Nuclear Antibodies (ANA) are typically tested using a red top tube, also known as a Serum Separator Tube (SST). This type of tube contains a gel barrier that separates the serum from the blood cells after centrifugation, allowing for easy collection of the serum for testing. The red color of the tube indicates that it is suitable for serum collection.
