Expansion of the Portfolio for Safe Blood Collection
In response to high demand for Greiner Bio-One safety products, in April 2018 the existing range will be expanded with the new VACUETTE® SAFETY Winged Set. As always, the aim is to provide functional, user-friendly and patient-friendly product solutions.
Winged Needle Set for Safe Blood Collection
Each of the VACUETTE® SAFETY Winged Sets is equipped with a safety mechanism. For greater flexibility, there are three different options for activating the safety mechanism immediately after blood collection. The clearly audible click confirms that the needle is safely and irreversibly locked in the safety shield. To give the user more choice, the safety blood collection set is available both with and without a pre-assembled Blood Culture Holder. The transparent product design provides optimal blood flow visibility.
Lower Risk of Needlestick Injuries
Around a third of all occupational incidents in healthcare involve needlestick injuries. Nurses are at particular risk of being infected by blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV. It is therefore advisable to use safety products for taking blood samples in order to lower the risk of needlestick injuries.
