Arterial Blood Gas Sampler
As arterial blood gas collection has evolved over the past three decades, the
presence of air in the sample and inconsistent sample sizes have remained the
primary causes of specimen contamination. Now the revolutionary Mosquito®
Arterial Blood Gas Sampler redefines collection accuracy with a proprietary,
anaerobic design that virtually eliminates the potential for pre-analytical
Airless and effortless, the Mosquito® Arterial Blood Gas Sampler sets new
standards in blood gas collection. The Mosquito® sampler provides a fixed
sample size with no plunger to set and no tapping required to remove air
bubbles. As a result, user interaction is reduced and standardization is
enhanced whenever blood collection is performed.
The proprietary, dual lumen design features an easy-to-grip external barrel,
similar in diameter to the familiar 3ml syringe. The unique inner collection
lumen ensures an exact sample size every time. Arterial pressure fills the
Mosquito® sampler rapidly, so flash back and fill time occur almost
simultaneously. With minimal mixing, the special balanced Lithium/Zinc heparin
formulation results in no CO2 dilutional error, and only nominal effect on

CrickettTM: Needle Protection System
Combine Faultless Accuracy with Advanced Safety
Now your safety is just a click away. Designed to minimize the risk of
needlestick injuries, the CrickettTM safety
shield extends quickly and locks over the used needle to prevent accidental
needlesticks. The CrickettTM safety system
complies with all FDA, OSHA and NIOSH guidelines.
Healthcare providers who collect arterial blood gas samples are at risk of
exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Responding to the Needlestick Safety and
Prevention Act, which requires all healthcare providers in the United States to
use medical devices with "engineered sharps-injury protection," OSHA revised
the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard. This revision addresses the need for
employers to select safer needle devices and to involve employees in
identifying and choosing these devices.
