Blood sample quality issues


I am wondering if anyone knows how blood sample quality issues may affect the certain values.

Where we live the samples must be drawn by the vet on the day he leaves and transported by air, then he has to go to his main office and run the labs.

The local office doesn't have a centrifuge, so these samples are prone to clumping.

It's really hard to know if the values are correct, and what is incorrect about them. It is very aggravating.

I know platelets will clump, but any other common things in compromised samples?
