Becton, Dickinson, and Company (BD), Franklin Lakes, NJ, has received FDA premarket notification (510(k)) clearance and European CE marking for its Vacutainer UltraTouch pushbutton blood collection set. The blood collection set uses proprietary needle technology to help enhance the patient experience during phlebotomy procedures. The blood collection set employs patented PentaPoint Comfort 5-bevel needle technology, designed to create a flatter, thinner surface to help penetrate the skin with greater ease. The set can be used in combination with BD RightGauge technology, which increases the needle’s inner diameter and enables clinicians to select a smaller gauge needle without sacrificing sample quality and blood flow.
