We found that samples in which blood was acidified by citrate produced higher percentages of results within the desirable goal for bias compared with those collected into sodium fluoride. This confirms the findings of other studies. We also found that applying the multiplication factor suggested by Dimeski et al. (1.10) produced more results within the desirable goal for bias than applying the one recommended by the manufacturer (1.16). Our study underlines the superiority of tubes which contain citrate-based mixtures of inhibitors.
