Greiner Bio-One has expanded its product portfolio with the introduction of newly redesigned MiniCollect K2EDTA capillary collection tube for the healthcare market.
The MiniCollect K2EDTA capillary collection tube has been developed for the collection, transport and evaluation of capillary samples.
The redesigned product features an integrated scoop, which will help in easy collection of blood droplets following skin puncture and reduce the number of accessories required.
When the MiniCollect K2EDTA capillary collection tube is threaded into a 13x75mm carrier tube, the combination will deliver the functions of a standard blood collection tube.
According to the company, the MiniCollect Complete offers the advantage of having the MiniCollect permanently affixed to the carrier tube, which can be labeled as the primary tube.
