Scooping increases the risk of hemolysis, tissue contamination and clotting – it's also just plain messy. SAFE-T-FILL® collection tubes use capillary action to draw the blood into the capillary straw where it is immediately mixed with anti-coagulant. Discard the straw, pop on the attached cap, and your sample is ready for analysis.
SAFE-T-FILL Blood Gas Capillaries provide the same capillary action as glass without the associated risks. Used with heel or finger sticks, direct from a catheter, or as a transfer device, our capillary tubes offer a safer alternative to glass or Mylar®-coated glass capillary tubes.
