Blunt Needles, Huber Needles and Catheter Introducers

Blunt Needles, Huber Needles and Catheter Introducers

Huber Needles are special designed needles with a deflected point. The point eliminates the potential to 'core' a septum such as an injection cap or a vascular port. A Huber Needle must always be used to access any vascular access port in order to prolong the life and to protect the catheter from being occluded by a potential septum core. Needles are EtO exposed and available in various lengths and can be purchased individually or in multi-pack/bulk.

Blunt Tip Needles / Luer Stub Adaptors have many uses around the laboratory. Prevent catheter damage when accessing indwelling catheters by replacing sharp needles with blunt tip needles. Using blunt tip needles also enhances safety in the laboratory by preventing inadvertent needle sticks. Our high quality, low cost needles are de-burred, making blunting your own needles a thing of the past. We off a wide variety of sizes in ETO-Exposed or bulk non-sterile packages.
