Smearsafe offers a simple, seamless way to dispense a drop of blood from a tube. In a matter of seconds, a lab tech can insert Smearsafe, collect the required blood, and dispose of any unwanted components, without ever removing the lid of the tube.

Information about Smearsafe

  • Holding the tube upright, insert the Smearsafe cannula into the lid of the tube.
  • Invert the tube onto a glass slide or other receptor.
  • Press the Smearsafe head into the glass slide to produce a drop of blood.
  • Remove the tube and discard the Smearsafe component or the entire tube.
  • By varying the pressure and speed at which the tube is pressed into the slide, the tech can easily control the size of the blood drop. Because the part of Smearsafe that comes into contact with the slide is clear, it’s easy to monitor how much blood is being transferred every time.

Key Benefits of Smearsafe
Ideal for labs of all sizes, Smearsafe improves safety and efficiency by offering:

  • Single-use components sold in 1,000-unit cases.
  • A quicker blood dispensing method than applicator sticks and capillary tubes.
  • A simple way to get consistently sized blood drops.
  • An alternative to removing a tube’s lid for every collection.

Instructions
When using Smearsafe, lab technicians should always wear gloves. For best results, follow these directions:

  • Ensure that the tube is cap-side-up when using Smearsafe.
  • If using a tube that has been previously opened, verify that the cap has been completely sealed to avoid unwanted spillage.
  • Holding the Smearsafe cannula parallel to the specimen tube, insert the cannula into the tube septum until it is no longer visible.
  • Invert the specimen tube over a glass slide such that the Smearsafe is positioned in the middle of the slide.
  • Press gently down until a blood drop of the desired size appears on the slide.
  • When the drop appears, ease pressure on the tube and draw it away.
  • Discard Smearsafe in a sharps medical waste container. (It can be discarded after being removed from the tube or with the entire tube.)
