Intended Use

BD Vacutainer Tubes, Needles and Holders are used together as a system for the collection of venous blood.

BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needles are single-use, double-ended, medical grade stainless steel needles. They have a threaded hub that fits into the threads of all BD Vacutainer Holders. The venipuncture end of the needle has a point specially designed to enter the skin easily during venipuncture. The needle is lubricated with silicone. Needles are available in 1-1/4 inch and 21 and 22 gauge, with and without pre-attached holder. Needle size and lot number are printed on each individual needle assembly.

Products have a latex-free sleeve covering the non-patient (NP) needle that prevents leakage of blood into the holder during blood collection. The tubes slide into the holder and are pushed onto the NP needle, allowing the vacuum in the tube to draw blood to a predetermined level.

The BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needle is a safety-engineered multi-sample blood collection needle that offers a simple, effective way to collect blood while reducing the possibility of needlestick injuries. It features a patented safety shield that allows for one-handed activation to cover the needle immediately upon withdrawal from the vein and confirms proper activation with an audible click.

FAQ (3)

    BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needle

    1. Why must the pink safety shield on the BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needle be gently rotated back toward the holder?

    The pink shield is gently rotated back so it doesn't obstruct your view during venipuncture and collection. The pink shield is attached to the needle to provide protection from accidental needlesticks. The shield is directly in line with the bevel of the needle and all collections are performed with the bevel in the "UP" position.

    2. Will there be any change in my collection technique when using BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needles?

    No. The needle itself is the same BD Vacutainer PrecisionGlide needle that you are now using. The only difference is the added BD Eclipse safety shield, which provides protection from accidental needlestick injuries.

    3. What material is used to manufacturer needles for BD PAS products?

    The needles of the BD Vacutainer Push Button Blood Collection Set, BD Vacutainer Safety-Lok Blood Collection Sets and BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needle are all made of stainless steel (grade 304).
