Phlebotomy Services

Young-woman-drawing-an-older-man-bloodPhlebotomy is the act of drawing or removing blood from the circulatory system in order to obtain a sample for diagnostic tests. Phlebotomy is performed by puncturing a vein with a needle. Phlebotomy is commonly referred to as a “blood draw.” The amount of blood drawn depends on the purpose of the phlebotomy. The volume of blood needed for laboratory analysis varies widely with the type of test being conducted.

At UI Hospitals and Clinics, phlebotomy staff in the Department of Pathology undergo extensive training for a minimum of six months. Phlebotomists who perform the procedure on children must undergo additional training. Many of our phlebotomists are certified by the American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) as Phlebotomy Technicians (PBT).
