We have developed a worksheet for staff to follow that I am happy to share bu pharmacokinetics
But we do daily bu mostly with 8 time points post.
We definitely draw from alternate linen, keep the samples on ice in the fridge.
Feel free to email me if you think the work sheet would help

Hi Stephanie. See answers below:
I am curious as to how other institutions draw Busulfan Pk levels?
Time points? (i.e. pre / post infusion for how many blood draws). post only- follow the Seattle IV Q 6 Busulfan Pharmacokinetics Requisition.
Does the nurse draw from the opposite lumen Busulfan infused? yes
Do you send the specimens to lab on ice? yes
Take care 🙂
