It is commonly used for venipuncture or drawing blood as it is easily accessible and has a relatively straight path.

    Explanation
    A Lavender tube is used for the CBC (Complete Blood Count) and ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate) tests. The CBC test provides information about the number and types of blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The ESR test measures the rate at which red blood cells settle in a tube, which can indicate inflammation or infection in the body.

    Explanation
    Grey tubes are used for tests such as GTT (Glucose Tolerance Test), FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar), Glucose, Blood Alcohol, and Lactic Acid. These tests are commonly performed to measure blood glucose levels, assess glucose tolerance, detect diabetes or monitor blood alcohol levels. The grey tubes contain an additive called sodium fluoride and potassium oxalate, which help preserve the glucose in the blood sample and inhibit the growth of bacteria. This ensures accurate and reliable test results for these specific analytes.
