LGVH Tube Modification

Covance Central Laboratory Services would like to make sites aware of a slight product modification to the BD LGVH Vacutainer.

The container code, catalog number and product description have not changed. The only change is that the new tube has a ribbed body design to provide a better grip and a dome top which may offer a better angle for needle entry.  The holder threads remain the same.  Additionally, the new tubes are produced using 20% less material.

Sites should continue to use any old holders they have on hand and begin using the new holders once they are received.
