Hematype Segment Device


Segment Device


The Hematype Segment Device supports safe handling of blood bag tubing segments.


Hematype is a reliable alternative to scissors when accessing blood-filled tubing for sampling.

  • Easy-to-use
  • Designed to reduce sharps injuries 
  • Reduces risk of blood spills and splatters

Hematype protects technicians and the integrity of samples

The top of the Hematype has a tapered opening for placing a standard size blood tube segment. The Hematype base is placed over a vial to direct the sample flow.

A needle within the Hematype chamber accesses the tubing contents while protecting the operator's fingers from injury. Splattering is reduced since the opened tubing is contained within the chamber.

Hematype is a single-use device. Unlike using scissors to access a tube sample, Hematype reduces the risk of sample cross-contamination when used as intended.

Hematype works with plastic and glass vials with a diameter of 10 to 12 mm. This flexibility allows Hematype to be used with most commercially available vials.
