Hospital-acquired anemia (HAA) is a condition resulting from treatment for an unrelated illness or ailment. It has been shown that the excessive blood drawn for laboratory testing contributes to this condition. Greiner Bio-One offers a complete line of low volume tubes under the VACUETTE brand name with draw volumes of 1 mL to 2.5 mL to facilitate reduction of phlebotomy volumes, improve overall patient care, and minimize the amount of discarded specimen to reduce waste.For more information, please visit: Technologies, Inc.
The VanishPoint blood collection set (BCS) is a novel safety blood collection device that features automated in-vein retraction, which virtually eliminates exposure to the contaminated needle. The unique design has integrated finger grips that allow for handling ease. The automated needle retraction is activated by depressing a retraction trigger located near the finger grip area, allowing for easy one-handed activation, without changes in hand position, while reducing the risk of inadvertent activation. In addition, the needle retraction automatically clamps the tubing, reducing the risk of exposure to blood. This product is not made with DEHP or PVC.For more information, please visit: tourniquets
