VACUETTE BLOOD COLLECTION TUBES
The advantages of using an evacuated blood collection system made out of plastic has been well known for a long time. It is of the greatest importance to produce high quality samples and analysis results, along with minimized risk of infection to staff. Greiner Bio-One can offer a complete range of evacuated blood collection tubes made out of virtually unbreakable PET-plastic. All of them are equipped with a unique safety cap, which also offers maximum security to healthcare workers. Coagulation is a critical testing area proving to be a challenge to some manufacturers. Not for us at Greiner.
Qlicksmart CheckCLIP is a simply safer way to label syringes with the name of the medication that has been drawn up always visible. This significantly reduces the risk of morbidity and mortality caused by medication errors. Medication errors kill at least 1 patient every day in American hospitals and 1.3 million patients are injured every year at a cost of $6 billion per year. Medication errors occur in nearly 1 of every 5 doses of IV drugs given to patients in the typical hospital. Traditional labelling techniques that involve handwriting on the syringe, attaching the ampoule with surgical tape or labelling with stickers are all prone to medication errors.
Tape and stickers obscure incremental marks on the syringe and handwriting is time-consuming and open to transcription error. As a result, virtually every practitioner experiences a ‘near miss’ or worse at some stage in their chaotic work environment.
