As international “Trendsetter“ in the area of specimen collection, Greiner Bio-One Preanalytics is an active partner to clinics and laboratories. In the mid-eighties, the company set a decisive impulse in motion with the pioneering invention of the world’s first evacuated blood collection made out of PET. Over the past 20 years, the VACUETTE® system has changed the market. Specimen collection is simpler yet safer.
The optimally coordinated VACUETTE® range products provide a threefold safety advantage for medical staff: guaranteed safety in venipuncture, guaranteed application safety due to improved hygiene when opening the tube as well as reliable analysis results.
By using VACUETTE® Safety Products, needlestick injuries and occupational hazards such as HIV as well as Hepatitis B or C can be virtually eliminated. Newly developed product solutions such as the VACUETTE® QUICKSHIELD Safety Tube Holder or the VACUETTE® PREMIUM Tube with Safety Twist Cap reduce the risk of injury or contamination to an absolute minimum, allowing for easy and efficient specimen collection routine.
For over 20 years now, Greiner Bio-One Preanalytics has been developing unique products: products that are successful due to depth of experience, modern production facilities and comprehensive quality management. Furthermore, the company can offer customers a broad range of services such as continual customer support with experienced distribution partners and product experts, custom-made solutions for every problem as well as a wide range of product training materials.
