As you know, the pandemic has impacted global supply chains and we have been advised by our supplier that following phlebotomy tubes are currently in short supply:

LL #28581-  BD LAVENDER TUBE 13X75 LAVENDER 4.0ML HEMOGARD, PLASTIC, (BD item #367861) 100/SP

LL #28642 – BD GOLD TUBE 13×100 GOLD 5 0ML HEMOGARD PLASTIC 0268397 (BD item #367986) 100/SP

We are requesting that you please refrain from ordering surplus supplies of these phlebotomy tubes, and only order what is needed for your clinic until supplies return to normal.

While we have sufficient supplies to meet current demand we are asking you only to order what you need to help us maintain inventory, so we can continue to serve you and your patients moving forward.

As the situation evolves we will provide further updates.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
