NeedleDock ND5 Sharps Bin and Automatic Needle Removal System
The NeedleDock ND5 is a modern, safer and more cost-effective sharps bin that automatically removes hypodermic needles from syringes and securely locks the needles away in the tamper-proof and spill-proof container. It is perfect for eliminating the danger of needle-stick injuries at the point of use by separating the needle from the syringe in a single-handed action. Each NeedleDock safely stores up to 600 needles, both Slip Luer and Luer Lock type, and is compact, easily portable, includes a carry handle, a stabilizing base and is small enough that it can be transported in a medical bag. It has a two-position slider that safely closes up the hole between uses and has a final closure lock position once full. NeedleDock incorporates a simple and unique spring-based mechanism in a strong, closed container. After patient injection, the clinician ‘docks’ the needle through the small hole in the spring, (twists it for Luer Lock removal) pushes it down until it ‘clicks’ then pulls it up and it is safely removed from the syringe and locked away forever. The level of needles can be viewed through the transparent container so the fill line is clear and can be safely managed. As NeedleDock allows for disposal of needle sharps waste only the sharps bin space is used much more efficiently (the packaging, syringes, cotton wool etc. goes into the bulky, non-sharps clinical waste bins) meaning up to 40% fewer sharps bins are required, which results in lower overall purchasing costs, plus a significant reduction in the cost of clinical incineration. This pack includes 1 x NeedleDock ND5 including stabiliser tray. NeedleDock products are certified to ISO23907:2019 and UN3291.
