Hold colour top on the left, then place the bar code with the name of the patient facing you up close but not touching the colour top, laying length way on the tube. DO NOT PLACE THE NAME UPSIDE DOWN. DO NOT WRAP AROUND THE TUBE. This must be done correctly so the analyzer can read the information. Match the right label with the right tube.
