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.

VACUETTE® VISIO PLUS BLOOD COLLECTION NEEDLE
The VACUETTE® VISIO PLUS Blood Collection Needle with optical venipuncture control is a great help for phlebotomy personnel. The latest innovation from Greiner Bio-One at last brings vision to blood collection. When venipuncture has been carried out successfully, blood flow is visible in the view window in the transparent plastic hub of the needle.
The VISIO PLUS also has advantages for the patient. Movement in the vein during penetration whilst searching for the vein lumen is sometimes painful for the patient: Due to the visible blood flow in the view window, this movement is avoided. The special cut of the needle tip makes penetration of the tissue a lot easier. The new VACUETTE® VISIO PLUS needle thus guarantees pain-free, stress-free venipuncture.
