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.
SAFETY BLOOD COLLECTION/INFUSION SETS
The Safety Blood Collection Set with integrated needle protection is an important contribution to avoiding needlestick injuries. After use, the safety mechanism is activated inside the patient’s vein. To do this, the wings of the set are held in place with the fingers of one hand. With the other hand, the slide is released by pushing together the pieces on the side. The slide is then pulled back. An audible “Click” indicates correct activation
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
