Quick and Easy Blood Sample Collection with CapilliSafe™ Pastettes
Aug 04 2022
CapilliSafe Pastettes from Alpha Laboratories are the ideal solution to replace glass capillary tubes for blood sample collection. Each pipette fills easily to a pre-set volume using capillary action. The flexible polyethylene CapilliSafe Pastettes are safer and less expensive than glass tubes. They draw and dispense blood quickly without the need for anti-coagulant coatings. No additional bulbs, dispensers or other mechanical devices are necessary.
To use CapilliSafe simply prick the finger with a lancet or similar implement and allow a drop of blood to form. Hold the pipette horizontally touch the tip to the blood droplet. There is no need to squeeze the bulb as draw is automatic. Capillary action will automatically draw the sample to the fill line and then stop. To expel the sample, hold the CapilliSafe Pastette vertically, align the tip with the sample target and squeeze the bulb.
These single-use pipettes collect and dispense a specific volume (25μl or 50µl) of blood at ±15% whilst minimising the occurrence of air bubbles in the collection tube. An air vent is strategically positioned on the sidewall of the tube. This allows air to vent automatically, while controlling sample volume.
Perfect for use in diagnostics kits CapilliSafe Pastettes are not currently CE marked but are perfect for use in point of care diagnostic kits, where the whole kit will be CE marked.
