A Blunt Filter Needle is a specialized medical needle designed for the filtration and transfer of fluids or medications from one container to another, such as drawing medication from a vial and transferring it to an IV bag or another container. These needles have a blunt or rounded tip and are often used in healthcare settings to prevent coring (rubber stopper damage) during the drawing process.
Key features of a Blunt Filter Needle include:
Blunt Tip: The needle features a rounded or blunt tip that is designed to minimize coring when piercing rubber stoppers, ensuring the integrity of vials and containers.
Filtration: Some blunt filter needles are equipped with a built-in filter to remove potential contaminants from the fluid during the transfer process.
Luer Lock or Luer Slip Connection: Blunt filter needles typically have Luer lock or Luer slip connections for secure attachment to syringes, IV lines, or other medical equipment.
Sterile and Single-Use: These needles are pre-sterilized and designed for single use to maintain sterility and ensure safety.
Blunt Filter Needles are important tools in healthcare, particularly in medication preparation and transfer processes. They help maintain the integrity of medications and fluids while promoting safety for healthcare professionals by reducing the risk of accidental needlestick injuries.
