Check out this video tutorial to see how to tansfer blood specimens with the BD Blood Transfer Device.
The BD Blood Transfer Device is an easy-to-use, latex free device used to facilitate safe and simple specimen transfers. It protects the health and safety of healthcare workers who draw and transfer bodily fluids by reducing the risk of spills and needlesticks. Simultaneously, it helps to ensure sample integrity, which is critical for accurate diagnosis and prescription.
Depressing the syringe plunger during blood transfer can create a positive pressure forcefully displacing the tube stopper and sample which could result in splatter and potential blood exposure.
