safePICO sampler (website)

 Reduce the risk of needle-stick injuries

  • One-hand-operation of safety device allows safe removal of needles

Quickly remove air bubbles and avoid contact with patient blood

  • The safeTIPCAP simplifies the removal of air bubbles
  • Once air bubbles have been expelled, the sample is sealed for anaerobic transport
  • The risk of contact with patient blood is limited; ABL analyzers sample through the safeTIPCAP

Ensure fast and proper mixing with integrated mixing device

  • The integrated metal ball works as a mixing device, ensuring correct results, especially for Hb and fast mixing of the sample prior to analysiS

Correctly identify samples with safePICO’s unique barcode ID

  • safePICO is prebarcoded, making it easy to identify samples correctly (PSID)

safePICO Mixer

  • Ensure a thorough and uniform mixing from sample to sample by using the safePICO Mixer.
  • For use with ABL analyzers that do not have a built-in automated mixer

Avoid preanalytical errors

  • Radiometer’s free Blood Gas Preanalytics app gives you information on sampling techniques to help avoid preanalytical errors. The app is available for the Android, iPhone and Windows Phone.
