The Greiner product consists of a sterile holder (Holdex[R]) with a luer adapter to fit regular needles and evacuated blood collection tubes.
Features include: OSHA compliance; one-handed technique and one-step activation; audible and tactile click upon activation; self-sealing synthetic needle sheath; siliconized needle with less drag, which is more comfortable for the patient; and 12" tubing with a multi-sample luer adapter, or pre-attached tube holder.
A female luer adapter, a translucent shield--makes blood flashback clearly visible--and an easily activated security locking mechanism completely shields the needle until it is safely locked into place.
