LITTLE ELM, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Retractable Technologies, Inc. (NYSE MKT: RVP) announced today the launch of a new innovative product, the VanishPoint® Blood Collection Set (BCS). The VanishPoint® BCS is a novel safety blood collection device for diagnostic purposes that provides the ease of a shorter blood collection needle with preattached tubing. The unique design has integrated finger grips allowing for handling ease without the need for wings, which can interfere with disposal. The automated needle retraction is activated by depressing a retraction trigger located near the finger grip area, allowing for easy one-handed activation, without changes in hand position, while reducing the risk of inadvertent activation. In addition, the needle retraction automatically clamps the tubing, reducing the risk of exposure to blood.
