Objective: Appropriate selection of the type of blood specimen tube employed is of great importance to the accurate and reliable measurement of oxidative stress biomarkers. This study examined the effect of specimen variety on measurement results using serum and plasma samples obtained from blood tubes with six different contents for measuring ischemia-modified albumin (IMA), total oxidant status (TOS), and total antioxidant status (TAS).
