Abstract
Glucose values are essential and common investigations in clinical practice. The choice of anticoagulated tubes for sample collection affects the final glucose results obtained. This study aims to compare if there is any statistical difference between two anticoagulated tubes-fluoride oxalate and fluoride oxalate with EDTA used for glucose collection. A total of 64 adults participants (made up of 40 females, and 24males) were involved in the study with an average of 30.44.5years. After an initial overnight fast venous blood was collected and put into fluoride oxalate((group 1) and fluoride oxide + EDTA ( group 2) anticoagulated bottles. The group with fluoride oxalate alone had 64 samples and was labeled group 1,while the group 2 also had 64 samples(consisting of fluoride oxide + EDTA). Results of glucose samples in both groups were obtained and analyzed.. The mean glucose values in group 1 was 4.551.37mmol/L, while it was 4.611.44mmol/L in group 2. Correlation studies done for the two groups showed a strong correlation between them(r=0.892,p˂0.001).The p value of the two groups comparism was not statistically significant(p=0.458).Hence, there was really no statically difference in the samples fixed in fluoride oxalate alone or those in fluoride oxalate +EDTA. Our conclusions are that, samples in both groups1 and 2 gave similar results. and this does not affect the results of glyacted hemoglobin. This offers a good advantage in diabetic patients investigated for both glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) and glucose as the fluoride oxalate with EDTA tube can suffice for both tests thus enhancing laboratory economy.

Key words: glucose EDTA, fluoride, oxalate, anticoagulant
