|MICROSAFE® Collection and Dispensing Tubes|
MICROSAFE collection and dispensing tubes allow for blood sample collection and dispensing from a single plastic tube.
Each tube fills easily to a preset volume using capillary action. No aspiration. No air bubbles. No wasted samples.
Dispense the sample easily by pinching the unfilled portion of the tube. There are no bulbs, dispensers or other mechanical devices necessary.
MICROSAFE Collection and Dispensing Tubes are perfect for finger-stick sampling.
Available in volumes from 5 to 80 microliters. So you can be sure there’s a tube available in the exact size you’re looking for.

Using the MICROSAFE TubeMICROSAFE TUBE Device Specification
CAUTION! Filling is automatic: Never squeeze the tube while sampling.
Don't squeeze the bulb; MICROSAFE fills by capillary action.
Hold the tube horizontally, and touch the tip of the MICROSAFE® Tube to the blood sample. Capillary action will automatically draw the sample to a laser drilled air vent strategically positioned on the sidewall of the tube. This allows air to vent automatically. When the sample reaches the vent you have the exact amount required and it automatically stops filling.
To expel the sample, align the tip of the tube with the sample target and squeeze the bulb.
If a sample won’t expel, you probably didn't allow for the tube to fill all the way. Touch the tip to the blood sample again and allow it to fill completely. Then align the tip with the sample target and squeeze the bulb.
An automatic filling micropipette formed from a tubular body having an opening and being closed at an opposite end. The tubular body is sized to permit liquid to flow into the tubular body by capillary action. An aperture is provided in the sidewall. The aperture has a diameter smaller than the diameter of the open end. The intended use of this product is for the collection and dispensing of whole blood as well as other aqueous fluids.
