A colleague has requested advice about collection of blood 
cultures.  They were using the 20 ml vacutainer but BD 
stopped 
making it so they have gone to collecting 2-10 ml samples in 
separate tubes for injection into Septi-Chek bottles.  Since 
they are usually collecting other vacutainers, this is the 
route that they take rather than a syringe and direct 
inoculation into the Septi-Chek.  What alternatives would you 
suggest for them?
