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.
Packaging your drug in a prefillable syringe with a safety feature will provide protection for health care workers and patients against accidental needlestick injuries. The NovaGuard SA (Staked-needle Automatic) syringe system can be deployed using a single-handed technique to shield the exposed needle.
