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.

PENBLADE® SAFETY SCALPEL
PROTECT YOUR PEOPLE WITH PENBLADE®
The PenBlade Safety Scalpel has a retractable blade that activates like a click pen and retracts with a simple press of a button. The "Pen-Style" activation is intuitive because it uses existing muscle memory. The release button is positioned near the front of the scalpel where it can be pressed without looking or repositioning the hand. The result is a safety scalpel that doctors and nurses actually like using.
