Labeling

Phlebotomist labels tube of drawn blood

Once the blood is drawn, the tube is labeled. In many labs, the label may be pre-printed with the patient's name and unique patient identification number, or a barcoded label carrying this information is used. It is essential that the person drawing the sample label the tube properly before leaving your side.
