Venous Blood Collection
The VACUETTE® brand name has been synonymous with progress and innovation in blood collection for many years. Just like many other trend-setters, the VACUETTE® system has often been copied too, but its quality and safety have never been equalled.
All of the components of the VACUETTE® system are available in different versions covering a wide spectrum of applications. The range of tubes covers all requirements of modern routine laboratory practice, as well as specialist laboratory needs. The tube holders and puncture systems can be selected in accordance with the patient's individual vein conditions and based on various safety requirements.
In the healthcare sector sharps injuries account for most work-related transmissions of infectious diseases, whereby needlestick injuries present by far the greatest risk. More than 50% of all registered cases concern nursing staff, followed by doctors and laboratory staff.
However, needlestick injuries need not be an occupational risk. By using VACUETTE® Safety Products, this danger can be virtually eliminated.
Furthermore, by working with VACUETTE® Safety products you are compliant with criteria given in the EU Directive (EU 2010/32).
The VACUETTE® Transport Line ensures safe transport of biological substances category B from blood collection right up until analysis in the laboratory.
The transport systems have been tested and approved in accordance with ADR/RID.
As a potentially infectious sample material, urine must be transported, analysed and stored in a closed system. The sterile tubes and the matching accessories are particularly suited to microbiological and clinical chemistry diagnosis. The wide range of designs, such as the VACUETTE® urine collection tubes with a conical base to examine urine sediment, considerably extend the analytical options.
