A safety needle is a needle with SmartSlip technology. This is a technology that ensures that the needles connect securely to luer slip syringes. The safety cap helps prevent accidental needle sticking, which can lead to the transmission of blood-borne diseases. After using the needle, the safety cap can lock the needle with a simple thumb movement. An EU directive has been in force since January 2012. This new guideline should prevent needle stick injuries and emphasize safe working. For example, there is a ban on recapping (replacing caps and needles) and the use of safety needles and a correct sharps container is mandatory. The safety needles that we sell are exclusively from premium brands such as Becton Dickinson and Terumo.
