i had blood work done at the doctor today. i'm sure one vial was more than enough for the tests i need done. but they took two. why? where does the extra blood go? i'm curious because i'm listed as a non-donar so if they put it in the blood bank they're violating my wishes. i just wonder if it's some kind of blood conspiracy. what are your thoughts and opinions on this?
A lot of test require the blood to be treated or processed in a way that makes it unsuitable for other tests. Sometimes people have to fill many vials to cover a full battery of tests.
You will see that there are many different colored caps on the vials that indicate what is already inside them that mixes with the blood. Different color, different group of tests
i didn't notice that. thanks for the information. i will be sure to look at them the next time i have blood work done.
While incredibly boring you may want to look at just how strict the rules are for disposing of bio waste.
No way your blood from testing vials could ever make it to any legal blood bank.

How do you procrastinate with your serious writing? What do you do instead?What obstacles do you put in your own way in order to put off your serious writing? How cunning are these delaying tactics? How destructive are they?

Have you had ancestry DNA testing done and was it worth it?I know it can be quite pricey, but there are several gaps in our history on my Mother's side. My grandparents, great grandparents and beyond were born in a time where they were not welcome here and did a lot to disguise who they were...
