Sterile blood collection system
- Venipuncture sampling system which enables sampling directly into a sterile tube
- One-handed manipulation permits fixing the vein with the free hand
- System composed of evacuated Vacutainer® tube, sterile blood collection needle and needle holder
- Hemogard™ closure tube has unisized diameter, 13 mm, streamlining and simplifying the specimen handling process
Stoppers contain no TBEP. The tubes can be used for serum, plasma or whole blood based on their color-coded tops. Vacutainer® tubes are available with the conventional rubber stopper or a Hemogard™ closure. The Hemogard™ closure allows laboratory professionals to confidently handle specimens. The stopper that seals the tube is covered by a plastic shield to help protect lab personnel from contact with blood on the stopper or around the outer rim of the tube as well as from blood spattering when tube is opened. The rubber stoppers are recessed inside the shield, isolating any remaining blood from potential contact. All tubes are usable with 0194Z81 and Z82 series adapters and 9670L20 series holders which take 9670H10 series needles interchangeably.
Vacutainer® and Vacutainer® Plus tubes are listed in the following table. The Hemogard closure is noted on the chart by the letter “H”.
