VanishPoint® Blood Collection Set
The VanishPoint® Blood Collection Set, from Retractable Technologies, Inc., features automated in-vein retraction that effectively reduces the risk of needlestick injuries and blood exposure. The safety mechanism is activated by depressing a retraction trigger that is located near the finger-grip area. This allows for easy one-handed activation, without changes in hand position, while reducing the risk of inadvertent activation. The needle is retracted directly from the patient, virtually eliminating exposure to the contaminated needle.

GREINER BIO-ONE SAFETY PRODUCTS - VENOUS BLOOD COLLECTION
In the healthcare sector sharps injuries account for most work-related transmissions of infectious diseases, whereby needlestick injuries present by far the greatest risk. More than 50% of all registered cases concern nursing staff, followed by doctors and laboratory staff.
However, needlestick injuries need not be an occupational risk. By using VACUETTE® Safety Products, this danger can be virtually eliminated.
Furthermore, by working with VACUETTE® Safety products you are compliant with criteria given in the EU Directive (EU 2010/32).
Controlling liquid infectious waste continues to present multiple challenges. As regulations tighten and operating costs rise, it’s important to find a safe,
cost-effective solution that’s affordable and provides minimal environmental impact. The QUICK-DRAIN™ Systems from Bemis simply and effectively address your challenges, from staff safety to regulatory compliance to cost-effective disposal of liquid infectious waste.
BABYLANCE SAFETY HEELSTICK
The babyLance™ safety heelstick from MediPurpose™ was developed with more than 10 years of proven product development expertise, leveraging the advanced thinking behind our SurgiLance™ safety lancet. The result is a precise, safe and consistent heel incision device specifically designed for babies.
Performance You Will Appreciate
The proprietary spring design provides a swift pendulum action of the cutting blade that makes a gentle incision and complies with CLSI LA4-A5 guidelines.
Easy on You and Baby
The industry's easiest trigger reduces finger pressure and activation distance for improved stability and incision quality, which greatly minimizes the risk of bruising.
Fits Your Hand Like a Glove
Designed with you in mind. Ergonomically, the dimples give you a secure grip. While functionally, the device cradles the baby's foot for stability and reduced rock, with visual markings that enable better alignment and a more accurate incision.
The Perfect Incision Every Time
The innovative spring design controls the consistency of the depth and width of the incision for better blood flow, without touching the baby's tender nerve fibers.
