Greiner Bio-One manufactures blood and urine specimen collection systems for the medical industry, including plastic evacuated collection sets and accessories, decapper instruments, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) analysers, and capillary blood collection systems.
In the mid-eighties, Greiner launched its first blood collection system made with polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic. This design included a safety cap, which prevents users coming into contact with patient's blood and ensures transportation safety.
Specimen collection for blood and urine
With increases in the prevalence of infectious diseases, the protection of medical staff is of high-importance. The VACUETTE® Blood Collection System addresses that concern, presenting users a safe method of taking blood.
The VACUETTE® system has become a trendsetter and while many components have since been copied, none reached Greiner Bio-One's high-quality design.
The company also produces collection devices for urine samples, as well as other specimen collection equipment such as needles, sharps disposal containers, different types of tourniquets such as the VACUETTE® Super T, and containers for the safe transport of specimen material.
High-quality specimen collection sets compliant to industry requirements
Greiner Bio-One is dedicated to providing high-quality products, which adhere to pharmaceutical industry safety guidelines. The company's products follow electric commerce (EC) directives and US regulations (21CFR) and are manufactured accordingly.
The company has also been awarded ISO 9001:2008 and EN ISO 13485:2012/AC:2012 certificates to certify that its quality management system conforms to these requirements.
In addition, the VACUETTE® system contains a Conformité Européene (CE) mark and is compliant with ISI 6710 and EN ISO14820 international standards for single-use containers for blood collection.
