Hello, Maretta Afia, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.

Examination of blood sugar levels in the laboratory used to use whole blood (all blood components), but now the examination of sugar levels is more often using serum because in serum there is more dissolved glucose. Centrifugation aims to separate serum from blood cells. If the serum is not separated from the blood cells, then what happens is that glycolysis (the breakdown of glucose for metabolism) becomes excessive, resulting in a decrease in glucose levels, so the results are less accurate. For the complete process, you can read the literature on clinical laboratory examination procedures.

That's it, I hope it's useful.

Regards, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
