Miami, Florida, February 28, 2008
STAT Medical Devices, Inc.® has designed a new, patent pending infant heel blade-type, blood sampling device for lab draws, at a significant savings over comparable devices and available for shipment in early Spring of 2008.
The Pedi-Lets (available in two sizes) are the latest addition to STAT’s ever-growing line of clinical blood sampling devices. These non-reusable devices deliver a precise, blade incision in one sweeping motion, fully retracting safely into the device itself. They are designed to produce a maximum blood sample from a clean incision with less pain and a faster healing time than traditional puncture-type devices.
“Manufacturability was key,” says Steven Schraga, President/Executive Director R&D, “this is a smart design – priced to be very competitive. The Pedi-Lets will be priced significantly less than comparable heel blade devices on the market today.”
“We’ve put a great deal of thought into the development of these devices, not only is the packaging easy to open with surgical gloves on, the individual, sterile packs have a special soft-design to prevent punctures in gloves when it is crumpled and thrown away,” says Schraga. “Healthcare professionals who have used the product have been extremely happy with the device’s design and performance.” The Pedi-Lets feature an ergonomic design with textured indentations to reduce slipping and the smaller, pressure-triggered head allows the clinician to see exactly where the incision will land.
Both devices are latex-free and packaged in individual, sterile packs – 50 to a box. The standard Pedi-Let has a blade depth of 1.0 mm and a length of 2.5 mm while the Pedi-Let Preemie has a .85 mm depth and a 1.75 mm length. – See more at: http://statmedicaldevices.com/press-release3.html#sthash.ihDiEsqu.dpuf
