H-Pette™ Tool for Blood Smears
The H-Pette™ is a safe, time-saving, all-in-one tool for creating blood smears for differential slides
Labcon’s H-Pette™ Dispenser makes blood slide preparation safe and easy. Simply insert the H-Pette™ directly into the stopper of any size blood collection tube, dispense one drop onto a glass slide, and use the integral blade to smear the drop across the slide.
Easy Differential Smears
H-Pette™ streamlines the process of making slide smears. Simply push to release one drop and and then slide the H-Pette™ blade across the drop for a perfect smear. No need to use another glass slide. And H-Pette™ stays attached to the tube should you need subsequent smears.
H-Pette™ is a one piece molded tool with an integral spreader blade. It inserts onto all popular blood collection tubes. Since you don’t have to open the primary sample tube, you greatly reduce the risk of lab-acquired infection by minimizing aerosols and exposure to blood borne pathogens.
H-Pette™ simplifies blood smear preparation by cutting out several steps, thereby improving efficiency, saving time, and reducing wasted materials and blood samples. Using the H-Pette™ eliminates the need for sticks, capillaries, or syringes to dispense blood on the slide. And H-Pette™ requires no special training, no special fittings or inserts.
H-Pette™ is compliant with the IVD Directive 98/79/EC and lot tested Endotoxin Free (non-pyrogenic).
Available in a resealable package of 100 or 5 packs of 100.
|Endotoxin Free (Non pyrogenic)
Product samples are exposed to endotoxin-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for contamination using the kinetic turbidimetric Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) assay protocol and USP guidelines. All products tested must display less than 0.05 EU/ml to be certified free of endotoxin.
|Nuclease Free (RNase/DNase)
Product samples are exposed to nuclease-free water and the resulting extraction fluid is tested for nuclease activity on commercially available 7.5 kb Poly(A) tailed RNA (1µg) and HindIII-digested DNA (1µg) with a one hour 37°C incubation in appropriate buffers. Results are visualized on an agarose gel with appropriate positive and negative controls. Extraction fluid samples must show no degradation of the nucleic acids by the extraction fluid has occurred for the product to be certified as RNase-free and DNase-free
|Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)
Product sample surfaces are tested for the presence of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) using a controlled bioluminescence reaction to detect contamination. Luminescence data is compared to results generated by ATP-free surfaces and surfaces with known amounts of ATP as a positive control. The relative light units result must indicate less than 2 X 10-12 mg/µl of ATP for the product to be certified as ATP free.
