The friction ring mechanism permits the automated retraction of the syringe needle into the barrel of the syringe, directly from the patient, after delivery of the medication is completed. The VanishPoint blood collection tube holder utilizes the same mechanism to retract the needle after blood has been drawn from the patient. Closure of an attached end cap of the blood collection tube holder causes the needle to retract directly from the patient into the closed blood collection tube holder. The IV catheter also operates with a friction ring mechanism whereby the needle is retracted after insertion of the catheter into the patient. It also has a Patient Safe syringe which reduces the risk of infection resulting from IV line contamination. Advantages of its VanishPoint safety needle products include protection from needlestick injuries, prevention of cross contamination through reuse, and reduction of disposal and other associated costs.
