SAFETY SUBCULTURE UNIT
The Safety SubCulture Unit (SCU) is a sharps safety device used to obtain samples from positive blood culture bottles. Needleless sampling reduces risk of needlestick injury.
The plastic tip safely pierces the bottle septum and makes it easy to insert and remove from the culture bottle. The integrated filter cap controls gas or culture discharge for an added level of safety.
PROLANCE single-use safety lancets have been designed for modern capillary blood sampling and the device is an integral component to sharps-injury prevention programs in hospitals, clinics and wherever patients and professionals have to feel safe.
PROLANCE is available in six different color-coded product versions to meet specific blood sample application and address the variety of patient skin type
QLICKSMART BLADE NEEDLE SYSTEM
Qlicksmart BladeNeedleSYSTEM provides a simply safer way to remove and contain used scalpel blades and suture needles in sterile operating environments. BladeNeedleSYSTEM replaces the two-handed built-in blade remover of the existing needle counters with the world-first single-handed scalpel blade remover, which works perfectly safe.
Sharps injuries are a serious occupational hazard in healthcare settings. In operating rooms, scalpel blade injuries are the second most common type of sharps injuries, second only to suture needles. Use of a needle counter for safe containment of needles can minimize the risk of needle injury in the sterile field. However, built-in blade removers in existing needle counters are not safe, as they require two-handed activation and frequently malfunction. The sterile BladeNeedleSYSTEM enables single-handed removal and containment of used scalpel blades for safe disposal immediately after use, reducing the risk of scalpel injuries.
