TULIP SAFETY FISTULA NEEDLE
Features of the clear, patented TULIP safety needle protector:
A safe, easy and effective solution for obtaining a fingerstick blood samples!
The SurgiLance™ safety lancet from MediPurpose™ is a single-use needlestick device known for its safety, comfort and ease of use.
Safe and Easy to Use
SurgiLance™ safety lancets were explicitly designed to safely and easily deliver remarkably smooth incisions that minimize trauma to patients' fingers.
Unlike traditional lancets—and for that matter, some safety lancets—that requiring “arming” (inserting a needle into the device), SurgiLance™ is “pre-armed” and only requires five simple steps to operate.
Retractable Needles and Blades
The SurgiLance™ passive safety mechanism automatically activates after the device is used, requiring no action on the part of the user. After activation, the single-use device cannot be used again.
Seven Color-Coded Models
SurgiLance™ safety lancets are available in seven gauges and penetration depths, all of which provide identical safety and reliability.
