The breakdown of glucose (glycolysis) in venous blood samples is of great significance in pre-analytics, particularly in relation to the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus and gestational diabetes. To prevent immediate glycolysis in the event of delay between blood collection and measurement in the lab, test tubes should include a citrate/citric acid buffer as well as sodium fluoride (NaF).
