    I am one of those wierdo RN's who used to be a medical technologist in the clinical laboratory. Some samples go on ice because ice slow's down the rate of that substance being "used up" or "metabolized out" by the cells. A lot of things in the lab also have to do with what type of instrumentation and methodology is being used to run the test. That is why in some hospitals you can use certain tubes for a test but not in others. Just my 2 cents.
    Have a great day,
