The vacuum blood tubes blood collection and storage devices which consist a double pointed needle. They are particularly made of sterile glass or plastic with a coloured rubber stopper which provides a vacuum seal inside the tube. Most of the vacuum’s tubes contain additives like biochemical and anticoagulation to stabilize and preserve the blood specimen before the analytical test.
The vacuum blood collection tubes market is primarily driven by rising prevalence of diseases such as diabetes and infectious diseases which increases the demand for blood collection and increasing demand for safe and reliable blood collection devices. Increasing cases of diabetes and HIV diseases globally coupled with rising consumer awareness towards maintaining healthy lifestyle are factors that anticipated to fuel the global vacuum blood tubes market. Strict government regulation, lack of skilled personnel and risk associated with blood transfusion are the major factor hindering the growth of the market
The report analyses the vacuum blood collection tube market on the basis of type, application, end user, material and geography.
The report analyses the vacuum blood tube market by type into plasma separation tubes and serum blood collection tube. The plasma separation tubes are further bifurcated into EDTA tubes, heparin tubes, coagulation tubes, glucose tubes and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) Tubes. Plasma separation tubes contains spray coated lithium heparin and a polymer gel for plasma separation. Plasma is produced when whole blood is collected in tubes that are treated with an anticoagulant. The blood does not clot in the plasma tube. The cells are removed by centrifugation process. Heparin Tubes are spray-coated with either lithium heparin or sodium heparin and are used for plasma determinations in chemistry. Serum is, in simple terms, what remains in the blood after it clots: a cell-free liquid that is also depleted of coagulation factors. It can be a good, stable way of measuring the blood’s proteins, lipids, hormones, electrolytes and so on. EDTA prevents clotting by chelating calcium, an essential component of coagulation. This is your basic haematology tube (by which I mean identifying and counting blood cells, blood typing etc). Plasma stored from EDTA blood can also be used to measure most proteins, and genetic material can easily be stored from EDTA buffy coats (the interface between the red cells and the plasma after centrifugation, containing white cells and platelets). The coagulation tube contains sodium citrate solutions in concentrations of 3.2% and are used for assays in haemostaseology.
Based on application, the market is segmented into blood routine examination, biochemical test, coagulation testing and blood segmentation testing.
Based on end users the vacuum blood tubes market is bifurcated into Hospitals, Clinics, Pathology Laboratories, Blood Banks and Outpatient Centres. The hospital and pathology laboratories segment is expected to hold larger market share of the global vacuum blood tubes market. The increasing prevalence of diseases that requires blood diagnosis is the major factor leading to the growth of the market.
By material type the vacuum blood tubes market is segmented into glass tubes and Plastic tubes. The plastic tubes segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand of plastic tubes and low risk associated with tube breakage and specimen spillage which prevents the exposure of the sample to bloodborne pathogens.
Geographically, the global vacuum blood collection tube market is categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World. Rest of the world comprises of Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America accounted for the largest share in the vacuum blood tube market whereas Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest region. The largest share of the market is attributed to increase in blood testing in these countries due to the prevalence new diseases. In addition, increasing R&D investments by major participants in emerging economies is expected to robust the growth in the Asian countries.

BD is the inventor of BD Vacutainer blood collection tubes and is the world leader in blood tubes manufacturing.
A Vacutainer blood collection tube is a sterile glass or plastic test tube with a coloured rubber stopper creating a vacuum seal inside of the tube, facilitating the drawing of a predetermined volume of liquid. Vacutainer tubes may contain additives designed to stabilize and preserve the specimen prior to analytical testing. Tubes are available with a safety-engineered stopper, with a variety of labelling options and draw volumes. The colour of the top indicates the additives in the vial.
