Safety Capillary Blood Collection Systems

Micro collection is a general term that has been used to describe capillary blood sampling.  Safety capillary blood sample collection products consists of two major groups - lancets and micro collection tubes.  Together, these two product groups provide a simplified system for the collection and storage of low volume blood samples.  These micro collection products are used in obtaining skin puncture blood from infants, children, geriatric patients and critical care patients.

MiniCollect® Capillary Blood Collection System

The special circumstances relating to blood collection from small children places extra demands on the performance of a capillary blood collection system. Therefore, optimizing the technical aspects of the blood collection system can contribute to a simplified collection procedure. The new MiniCollect® tube shape is designed to facilitate thorough mixing of the blood with individual tube additives. The incorporated skirt at the base of the tube allows for the tube to be left safely standing when necessary. A visual control of the filling quantity is possible via graduation marks. The flexible rubber cap is equipped with so-called “Cross-Cuts“, which allow for filling or the collection of the blood sample without the need for opening the tube. This closed system prevents any aerosol effect and therefore any contamination. MiniCollect® tubes can be used in conjunction with either a funnel or a capillary. Greiner Bio-One is certified to ISO 9001 and EN 46001. For more information:
