The BD Vacutainer® Blood Collection System is a closed evacuated system consisting of sterile vacutainer tubes with pre-measured volume, vacutainer holder & double ended needle (holder and needle sold separately).
Blood is collected by screwing the sleeve-covered end of the needle into the holder then puncturing the patients' vein with the other end. After venepuncture the tube is then pushed down into the holder and the pre-measured vacuum of the tube allows the required volume of blood to be drawn.
