ProGuard II™ Safety Needle Holder

Kendall's ProGuard II™ Safety Needle Holder is designed as a single use disposable product that provides total needle protection, front and back for those who draw blood specimens. After the specimen is obtained the operator closes the hinged door sealing the open end of the tube holder for back end protection. Then the operator then retracts the needle with the thumb, allowing single-handed activation, an important feature in any safety device. The entire unit is then discarded into a sharps container

The ProGuard II Safety Needle Holder is an easy-to-use disposable holder that facilitates safe and accurate blood draws while helping to prevent accidental needlesticks. It can be safely engaged with one hand, attaching to any standard blood draw needle and protecting both the front and back ends. When it is activated, splatter is prevented. Once blood is drawn, the needle retracts and then locks permanently and safely in its protected housing, ready for disposal.

BD Eclipse Safety Shielding Blood Collection Needle

The BD Eclipse shield is activated immediately after the needle is removed from the vein. When the thumb pushes forward on the shield, an audible click indicates that the safety shield is locked in place. The BD Eclipse shield has minimal impact on waste disposal.

The BD Eclipse safety shielding blood collection needle is attached directly to a standard blood collection needle and already aligned with the bevel of the needle, so no extra assembly or adjustment is required by the use. The intuitive design of the advanced protection technology means there is no need to change the standard, one-handed venipuncture technique when using the BD Eclipse Safety Shielding Blood Collection needle. The procedure remains familiar and the user's other hand is free to apply pressure to the patient's puncture site. 

BD Vacutainer® Push Button Collection Set

The one-handed safety activation of the push button allows for activation of the safety mechanism while still attending to the patient/venipuncture site, and provides easier, safer blood collection for the healthcare worker, with no compromise to patient care.

BD Vacutainer® Push Button Collection Set is the only blood collection system with push-button technology. It offers split-second protection for that single moment which could potentially change your life. The push-button safety mechanism instantly helps protect you against needlestick injury. Its in-vein activation reduces risk of healthcare worker exposure to a contaminated needle, provides easy activation without patient discomfort, and is ideal for use in high-risk environments. 


Venipuncture Needle-Pro Needle Protection device

The Venipuncture Needle-Pro device is a disposable holder-based needle protection device that, once engaged against any hard surface, covers both ends of a multisample blood draw needle, thus protecting clinicians against accidental needlesticks throughout the entire disposal process. The one-handed operation leaves the opposite hand free to perform hemostasis. Upon engagement of the safety feature, the holder and needle are disposed of together, complying with the updated OSHA directive concerning the prohibition of removing contaminated needles from blood collection holders and disposing of the holder together with the contaminated needle immediately after use.
