Greiner Bio-One Adds New Safety Hyperdermic Needle to Range

New Safety Hyperdermic Needle

Greiner Bio-one has announced it has added a new product to its range of safety solutions in an attempt to eliminate the risks of needlestick injuries.

Launched in September 2015, the new VACUETTE® CLIX Safety Hypodermic Needle can be used for taking venous blood samples and for giving injections.

For many healthcare workers, needlestick injuries carry a high-risk of infection. With bloodborne pathogens such as hepatitis C and HIV, recent studies have revealed significantly higher levels of affliction amongst people in hospitals than in the wider population.

This versatile product is available with a wide range of needle thicknesses and lengths, easily distinguishable thanks to their colour-coded safety shields. One of the most impressive features of the VACUETTE® CLIX Safety Hypodermic Needle is how intuitive it is to use. Its straightfor-ward design means only minimal training is required.

The needle has an integrated safety mechanism, which can be activated using a solid surface or the user’s thumb. When the user hears a click, they know that the safety shield is positioned securely around the needle and they can proceed without any risk of a needlestick injury.

This product has been designed to be used with the VACUETTE® HOLDEX® tube holder, which has an eccentric luer fitting for a flatter puncture angle and thus increased comfort for the patient and user.

Greiner Bio-One has developed a newly-designed capillary blood collection tube featuring an integrated collection scoop and a co-molded cap for collection and sampling.
