Greiner Bio-One specialises in the development, production and distribution of high-quality plastic laboratory products. The company is a technology partner for hospitals, laboratories, universities, research institutes and the diagnostic, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
Our Preanalytics division manufactures evacuated sample collection tubes for blood, urine and saliva, as well as capillary blood collection systems and also distributes suitable safety products and accessories.
As one of the first manufacturers to develop an evacuated specimen collection system for blood and urine made of virtually unbreakable Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic, Greiner Bio-One Preanalytics is an innovator in evacuated specimen collection.
Venous blood collection
With the VACUETTE® brand, Greiner Bio-One offers its customers a wide range of products for venous blood collection. The innovative blood collection tubes made out of virtually unbreakable PET plastic are available in standard to special tubes, with various additives.
If a health sector employee falls ill with a bloodborne illness, the cause is often a previous injury from a sharp, contaminated object. Direct blood-to-blood contact, such as with an NSI, is one of the recurring causes of infection.
For example, it is not possible to vaccinate against HIV and the consequences of infection remain fatal. Therefore, Greiner Bio-One carries a wide range of safety products to give you the best protection possible from bloodborne diseases caused by an NSI: safety tube holders, safety blood collection sets and safety needles.
Besides blood collection tubes and safety products, Greiner Bio-One distributes a diversity of accessories like tube holders, snap caps and ESR accessories.
Capillary blood collection
With the MiniCollect® brand, Greiner Bio-One offers a wide range of products for capillary blood collection. The system is suited for young children and geriatric patients, as well as patients with fragile veins. MiniCollect is also recommended in situations where venous blood collection proves particularly difficult, such as for patients with extensive burns.
Safety products, such as safety lancets and accessories, such as carrier tubes, funnels or capillaries, are also available with the brand MiniCollect.
With MiniCollect Complete, a capillary blood collection system is available, which already includes the carrier tube. The MiniCollect tube is already irreversibly assembled in the carrier tube, delivering many advantages for sample analysis in instruments.
Every urine sample is potentially infectious. By using the closed VACUETTE urine system, hygienic sample collection and laboratory processing can be ensured. Greiner Bio-One offers VACUETTE urine tubes, beakers and containers.
Saliva collection system
By rinsing with the saliva collection solution, saliva is collected efficiently and without stress. The dye contained (tartrazine) serves as an internal standard and ensures reproducible saliva analysis. The collection system consists of a saliva extraction solution, a saliva collection beaker and an evacuated saliva transfer tube.
Greiner Bio-Ones provides a vast range of automatic safety IV and arterial catheters for demanding physical conditions and various clinical needs. Developed with the user and patient in mind, they are designed to give the user confidence that first-time insertion success is achievable every time.
