BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needles Incorporates additional safety into the traditional BD Vacutainer blood collection needle, with no need to change the blood collection technique. The built-in safety shield is in alignment with the bevel of the needle and can be activated immediately after blood collection using a one-handed continuous movement. There is no need for a work table or surface to activate it. The safety shield permanently locks into place, significantly reducing the risk of accidental needle stick injury and infection transmission. Compatible with all BD Vacutainer holders and tubes and available with pre-attached holder providing greater ease of use and aseptic procedure.
