For your most precious samples: MiniCollect® Capillary Blood Collection System

MiniCollect® offers a gentle way to collect small blood samples for a wide range of analyses.

The capillary blood sample is becoming increasingly popular as specimen material due to its simpler and less invasive sampling procedure. One of the advantages is the low blood volume. Small quantities are sufficient to enable a variety of parameters to be tested.

Capillary blood collection supports the Patient Blood Management approach: As little blood as possible, as much as necessary. If for some reason venous blood collection is not possible, capillary blood collection could be a promising alternative. For children and patients who require frequent sampling it is essential that the volume of blood collected is minimized.

The MiniCollect® Capillary Blood Collection System is perfectly suited for young children, geriatric patients as well as patients with fragile veins. MiniCollect® is also recommended in situations where venous blood collection proves particularly difficult or contraindicted. For delicate vein conditions, patients who often have blood samples taken, or people with severe burns, capillary blood collection with the MiniCollect® system offers a great alternative to venous blood collection.

MiniCollect® meets carrier tube

MiniCollect® tubes can be inserted into a PREMIUM carrier tube. This combination corresponds to the dimensions of a standard 13 x 75mm tube. With the MiniCollect® Complete version, which is already irreversibly assembled with the carrier tube, the advantages – particularly for automated analysis of the sample – are numerous.

The standardized tube size enables identification with standard tube label formats. MiniCollect® tubes in combination with carrier tubes can be processed in a standard centrifuge. The tubes have a pierceable cap whilst still closed and remain leakproof. It is not necessary to remove the cap before analysis, thus keeping the process simple and hygienic.

Wide range of safety lancets

The MiniCollect® lancets are available with a wide range of puncture depths and blade sizes / needle gauges to ensure that the puncture wound can be kept as small as possible while achieving the targeted sample volume. 

The safety mechanism ensures that the blade / needle is automatically retracted after the puncture and is safely enclosed within the plastic housing. In particular when dealing with our youngest patients, it is imperative that the procedure be as gentle as possible to avoid causing unnecessary anxiety. 

The safety mechanism means that the blade / needle is hidden from view, allowing the blood collection to take place in a more relaxed atmosphere for all concerned.
