There is a highly significant correlation between blood loss from sampling and transfused blood volume; the highest frequencies of sampling occurring during the first week of life, in very preterm infants and in critically ill infants.1 The number of blood samples taken and the amount of blood taken during blood sampling should be kept at a minimum.2


epoc Care-Fill™ Capillary Tube

The epoc Care-Fill™ Capillary Tube aids clinicians in the collection of capillary samples. It is designed to work specifically with the epoc System. Care-Fill Capillary Tubes give the clinician guidance as to how much blood is needed unlike a traditional capillary tube.

  • 90 microliter sample size
  • Heparinized
  • Designed to deliver the patient specimen consistently and accurately when used with the epoc System

Post calibration sample application
Post calibration sample application ensures that the operator does not waste precious blood which may require a re-stick for a difficult to obtain patient sample.
