Needlestick injuries are one of the most frequent accidents in hospitals and they can be particularly dangerous for healthworkers if there are contaminants involved, such as HBV, HCV or HIV.
Greiner Bio-One has released the VACUETTE EVOPROTECT safety blood collection set in an effort to prevent needlestick injuries during blood collection. The semi-automatic click mechanism protects the user from the risk of needlestick injuries and makes the daily task of blood collection easier. The safety triggers located on the side of the device facilitate one-handed activation. The needle is then automatically retracted and, at the same time, safely and irreversibly enclosed in the safety shield. A clearly audible click confirms that the safety mechanism is successfully activated.
The safety blood collection set meets current safety requirements and provides substantial support for safe blood collection and infusion with the same set.
