Can errors in blood collection or shipping affect the values?

Before your blood is used for the examination, our laboratory team checks the condition of the blood. Hemolytic blood (clotted blood) will not be used for the examination. We will then contact you and automatically send you a new kit so that the blood sampling can be carried out again. How can the blood become hemolytic? There are two possibilities:
1. The blood transport took too long or the blood was exposed to very high temperatures during transportation (in the mailbox).
2. The blood sample was pressed very hard on the finger, so that the red blood cells "burst" and the blood became hemolytic.
In any case, we will send you a new test kit!
