Vacutainer® Safety-Lok™ is a blood collection and infusion set designed to protect healthcare workers against needlestick injuries. It is a ready to use device with no assembly required.
The Safety-Lok is easy to use with no change in technique needed. A slim, flexible device increases the technician’s control. The tube has minimized coiling and the wings are larger for better handling. A convenient luer adapter allows for specimen collection from a closed system.
A blood flashback can be seen through the translucent shield. After venipuncture the needle can immediately be covered with a yellow transparent shield that locks into protective position. This manually activated safety shield creates a barrier between the healthcare worker and the used needle.
