Clinical Documentation Reference Manuals (CDRM) are a compilation of white papers by laboratory discipline to support the use of the BD Vacutainer® tubes. The purpose of this manual is to support your facility when addressing your clinical data requirements.

  • These manuals will help you to address the Laboratory Accreditation Program Inspection Checklist by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
  • CAP Checklist questions #GEN. 40942 Phase 1 states: "Has the laboratory evaluated its specimen containers to ensure that they do not contribute to analytical interference in the assay to be performed?" NOTE: This may be done through some combination of direct testing by the laboratory, review of the clinical literature, and evaluation of information from manufacturers. It does not mandate exhaustive testing by each laboratory.
    COMMENTARY: The laboratory should evaluate its specimen containers to ensure that they do not contribute to analytic interference in the assays to be performed. This may be done through some combination of direct testing by the laboratory, review of the clinical literature, and evaluation of information from manufacturers. It does not mandate exhaustive testing by each laboratory. "Inertness" of blood collection containers and specimen-contacting transfer devices and aliquot tubes cannot be assumed, as materials within these containers may lead to erroneous test results with medical consequences. Further, over- or under filling vacuum tubes may lead to error.
