Issues of Substance Abuse Product Showcase

VanishPoint

VanishPoint® syringes are available in a variety of sizes, needle gauges, and needle lengths. The needle is automatically retracted directly from the patient into the barrel of the syringe when the plunger handle is fully depressed. The pre-removal, automated retraction virtually eliminates exposure to the contaminated needle, effectively reducing the risk of needlestick injury.

EasyPoint

EasyPoint retractable needles feature automated retraction technology and pre-removal capability that has made Retractable Technologies the industry standard, but with added versatility. They can be used with luer lock and luer slip syringes, including pre-filled syringes. When the color-coded activation tab is pressed, the needle automatically retracts into the safety chamber and remains enclosed through disposal. Upon needle retraction, the syringe luer tip is covered, reducing the risk of exposure to medication or blood and body fluids. EasyPoint retractable needles are easy to use, allowing single-handed activation, while the clinician’s fingers remain behind the exposed sharp at all times.
