Platypus® Needle Guard

Shields AV Fistula and Apheresis Needles on Withdrawal

The way to reduce needlesticks is to prevent your exposure to them.

Immediately shields AV fistula and Apheresis needles on withdrawal, reducing the risk of potential biohazard exposure and needlestick injury. The secondary locking feature fully encloses the needle within Platypus, further reducing risk of needlestick injury and exposure to potential blood drops from the needle tip. 

The effortless withdrawal technique means that Platypus requires minimal training and is easily incorporated into existing processes.
