Until now, there was really no alternative to differential slide preparation but two glass slides, a drop of blood from a capillary tube or pipette and a technician's skilled hands.
Helena's new H-Pette offers a new approach to slide preparation that eliminates the hazards of open tubes of blood and cuts consumption of slides and transfer pipettes. In addition to saving dollars on disposables, increased efficiency and safety are key benefits.
Just insert the H-Pette into the stopper of any size blood collection tube, invert tube and transfer the drop of blood to a glass slide. Rotate the tube and use the attached paddle to make your smears just as you would with a slide. The H-Pette remains in place in the stopper and is disposed with the tube as a biohazard. It can also be easily removed if necessary. H-Pettes are also available without blades and are ideal for transferring sample to test cassettes and slides.
H-Pette is available through Helena Laboratories, toll free 800-231-5663.
