EDTA tubes are small tubular containers widely used in the healthcare industry for a variety of tasks such as blood hematology determination, blood donor screening, and immunohematology testing, among others. EDTA tubes are blood collection tubes, and are used in laboratories and other related sectors. EDTA tubes have K2EDTA, which is a variant of Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. K2EDTA is an anticoagulant, sprayed around the walls of EDTA tubes. Some EDTA tubes have K3EDTA, which is the liquid form of EDTA.
The global spending on healthcare has expanded significantly in the past few decades, and the same is expected to positively influence the growth of the global EDTA tubes market during the forecast period. EDTA tubes are used for serologic tests, which are aimed at looking for antibodies in blood. Since EDTA tubes are widely used for tests which enhance the understanding of a person’s immune systems and in turn, aids in diagnosis, the global EDTA tubes market is expected to have a positive growth outlook during the forecast period.
EDTA Tubes Market: Dynamics
The global EDTA tubes market is expected to grow on the backdrop of growing demand for storage solutions made from high grade raw materials for serologic tests. There are a variety of factors which are expected to act as key drivers for the global EDTA tubes market during the forecast period. K3EDTA aids greater RBC shrinkage. EDTA was selected as the anticoagulant of choice by both the International Council for Standardization in Hematology (ICSH) and the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards (NCCLS). EDTA tubes are preferred as EDTA effectively and irreversibly chelates calcium ions, thereby preventing blood clotting.

EDTA tubes manufacturers focus on solutions which offer a safe method for blood sample collection, and have minimal chances of tube breakage or spoilage of specimen. The demand for efficient and protective solutions which reduce the chances for exposure to bloodborne pathogens, and EDTA tubes are uniquely positioned to help them achieve that. One of the factors which are expected to potentially hamper the growth of the global EDTA tubes market is the use of alternative blood coagulants in blood collection tubes.
