Needles & adapters

Needles and Multifly® needles with and without needle protection are characterised by direct availability There is no need for assembly with a needle holder. Only pre-assembled systems such as these needles offer safe protection against infection from contaminated, reused needle holders. The flat puncturing angle achieves optimal, safe puncture even in critical vein conditions. The needle protection on the Safety-Needles and Safety-Multifly® needles enables the safe termination of blood collection by locking the needle in the needle protector.

    Why are there various tube lengths for the Safety-Multifly® Needle?

    There are two tube lengths: 200 mm and 80 mm. The Safety-Multifly® Needle with tube length 200 mm is intended for blood collection in adults. The Safety-Multifly® Needle with tube length 80 mm has been specially developed for blood collection in children, in order to keep the dead volume and therefore the blood loss/unusable blood volume as low as possible

  • +

    Can the Safety-Multifly® Needle be used for short-term infusions?

    Yes, the Safety-Multifly® Needle is manufactured from DEHP-free materials and is therefore authorised for short-term infusions.

    Do the needle systems for the S-Monovette® contain latex?

    The valve rubber contains natural rubber. Natural rubber is manufactured from the milk of the hevea brasiliensis tree (latex milk), but the manufacturing process differs fundamentally from that of typical latex products such as disposable gloves. Natural rubber is vulcanised at temperatures between 160°C and 180°C. At these temperatures, the proteins which remain in the rubber mixture after the filtering process are generally denatured. Since the proteins in latex are the main cause of allergic reactions to latex items, it can be assumed that this cause will no longer exist.

  • +

    Do the needle systems for the S-Monovette® contain nickel?

    Yes, as the stainless steel used to produce medicinal needles has to contain a certain proportion of nickel in order to increase the quality. The steel corresponds to the standard requirements of medicinal needles. There are no indications of possible allergic reactions caused by brief contact with the needle.

  • +

    Should the S-Monovette® needles be bent before puncture in order to achieve a flat injection angle?

    Bending the needles before use should be avoided under all circumstances as this prevents the product from being sterile, and the decrease in the cross section of the needle tube can cause haemolysis. A flat injection angle is absolutely guaranteed by the slim design of the (Safety-)S-Monovette® Needle, without any bending being necessary.

  • +

    Which needles should be used to collect blood for the determination of heavy metals?

    It is recommended that the Safety Needle for Metal Analysis (product number 85.1162.600) be used in combination with the S-Monovette® Metal Analysis (product number 01.1604.400).

  • +

    How are the needle systems for the S-Monovette® packed?

    All (Safety-)S-Monovette® Needles and (Safety-)Multifly® Needles are individually packed and are sterile and pyrogen-free.

  • +

    Are there special needles for collecting blood from infants?

    Yes, there is a special needle for collecting blood from infants: the Micro Needle in needle sizes 21G, 23G and 25G is particularly suitable for this as it has a short needle (minimal blood loss, reduced risk of clotting), free 360° rotatability for difficult veins, and a handle.
