Follow standard protocol at the warming table: clean the infant, attach a "permanent" umbilical cord clamp on the cord right up against the infant's stomach and then remove the excess umbilical cord. The excess umbilical cord is typically about 10 inches long with either part of the SAFE-T-CLAMP or a Kelly clamp still attached to it.
Place the umbilical cord in the tray.
Press down on the lid.
Insert a "Vacutainer" onto the protected needle.
