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.

Tulip Safety Fistula Needle
Features of the clear, patented TULIP safety needle protector:
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.
Qlicksmart BladeCASSETTE provides a simply safer way to remove and contain used scalpel blades in sterile operating environments. This single-handed scalpel blade remover is a passive (automatic) safety device, and therefore safer and more effective than active (manual) safety devices.
Qlicksmart BladeCASSETTE prevents the dangerous injuries commonly caused by removing blades with fingers, forceps or re-sheathing technique and dramatically reduces the risk of scalpel blade injuries in operating theatres. BladeCASSETTE complies with safety guidelines such as OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard.
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.
