Needle Destruction Products
Needle destruction products destroy the needle immediately following its use. Needle destruction products are an absolute necessity in developing parts of the world to prevent the reuse of needles and the spread of bloodborne pathogens. They are NOT a good alternative, however, for hospital use in the developed parts of the world. Needle destruction products are products that bend, cut, or destroy the needle. This are distinctly different from needle disintegration products that send an arc of electricity to vaporize and melt the needle. This type of product is shown in another product category.
