Capillary Blood Collection Devices Market : Rise in Demand for Improvement in Techniques Used for Blood Sampling to Drive the Market Growth


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/16/2019 -- Blood is collected from patients to diagnose certain conditions. It is regarded as a crucial diagnostic tool in laboratory medicine for testing and analysis. A syringe and a needle are used for collection of blood. The collected blood was earlier transferred to non-sterile tubes for testing in laboratories. Presently, a standard sterile container is used for venous blood collection through a syringe or directly into the evacuated tube. Blood collection involves usage of different types of equipment and devices.

Read Report Overview:

Every infant in the U.S. undergoes a heel-stick procedure to provide a sample for metabolic screening tests. Several devices with safety features are available in the market to perform this procedure. The Tenderlett and Tenderfoot, and Microtainer Brand Safety Flow Lancet have retractable blades to prevent inadvertent reuse. The Tenderlett and Tenderfoot lancets are restricted to heel-stick and finger stick applications. Safety Flow Lancets can be used for finger sticks or heel sticks.

The evacuated tubes in capillary blood collection devices are made of glass or plastic. The tubes are of various sizes and several draw volumes with different closures. These have a variety of additives. Color coding is seen on the closure of an evacuated tube according to the additive in the tube. The National Committee on Clinical Laboratory Standards and the International Organization of Standardization recommends the color for the codes used. Safety closures on the tubes reduce the blood slip when opened. The volume of blood needed is mentioned clearly on the tube with the help of a label and it varies according to the size of tubes. The amount of vacuum helps to determine the volume which is filled into the tube. The volume should be within ± 10% according to the National Committee on Clinical Laboratory Standards and International Organization of Standardization standards. The expiration date is mentioned on evacuated tubes which is based on gel stability or vacuum loss.

Increase in geriatric population, rise in demand for improvement in techniques used for blood sampling, and surge in demand for safe blood removal technologies are projected to boost the growth of the global capillary blood collection devices market. However, risk involved in the technique used for capillary blood assortment is anticipated to restrain the global capillary blood collection devices market.
