MONROE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, April 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Greiner Bio-One is launching a new product as part of its VACUETTE® line – the innovative EVOPROTECT SAFETY Blood Collection Set. This innovative safety product provides semi-automated, in-vein activation protecting blood collection staff against potential injuries, because we believe that every needlestick injury is one too many!
While the needle is still in the patient’s vein, the safety mechanism is activated by pressing the release buttons on the side of the device. Utilizing a spring mechanism, the needle is gently retracted without the need for any further action by the user. A clearly audible click indicates successful activation of the mechanism. Following activation, the needle is safely and permanently enclosed within the safety shield.
Ease of use and patient comfort
The needle tip allows for gentle venipuncture. In addition, the specially designed, thin needle walls improve blood flow during collection. The VACUETTE® EVOPROTECT SAFETY Blood Collection Set was developed to ensure maximum stability of the needle throughout the collection process while focusing on ease of use as well as patient comfort. As noted during external evaluation, “the activation of the device is intuitive”.
The same VACUETTE® EVOPROTECT set can be used for both blood collection and short-term infusion, eliminating the need for a second puncture.
Needlestick injuries continue to pose a significant risk to nursing staff, doctors and laboratory employees and include the added risk of transmission of infectious diseases. Ensure you and your colleagues are protected with VACUETTE® EVOPROTECT.
