The BD Safety-Lok remains a very high-volume product because of the design and quality — users have resisted changing to other lower priced products. With BD as the benchmark product, we were very careful to produce a product that was identical in feel, function, and quality. We knew that we needed a safety design that matched BD and also a needle that was smooth and sharp. We have a super-sharp needle cannula that is custom made for us. Third party testing shows that it requires less penetration force than BD’s. Compare to BD Safety-Lok.
Our needle cannula also has an ultra-thin wall to provide a larger inner diameter (while maintaining needle strength). This results in a draw rate that is 200% faster than BD 23G and 60% faster in the 21G. You can also choose to use a 23G instead of 21G for patient comfort without compromising fill time.
