Animal blood collection with SARSTEDT. Good for animals, made for the practice.
Pre-analytics is the key phase in the diagnostic process for every animal, as even with the highest precision of modern analytical equipment, the measured result can only be as good as specimen quality allows.
We can support you with our expertise in pre-analytics and provide you with products to support you in your daily practice. Our goal is to ensure you have more time for the animals and their owners who visit your practice.
The S-Monovette® blood collection system enables closed blood collection using two techniques. The aspiration technique facilitates blood collection that adjusts to the blood flow, making it gentler. For a high blood flow, the dual system of the S-Monovette® also allows for the conventional vacuum technique for blood collection.
The great advantage of blood collection with an S-Monovette® is that the blood can be taken directly into the correctly prepared sample tube. No extra disposable syringe is needed to transfer the blood sample to other tubes. This saves resources and makes blood collection safer and more hygienic than alternative collection options.
The more sustainable cardboard packaging also keeps disposal costs and waste volume low.
”Today I was back at the vet, but somehow this time it was different: Everything went so smoothly. Before they would just prick me in the leg and then this red liquid would spill out everywhere. But today everything was so quick and nothing went wrong. It must be down to the vet’s new equipment. It can always be like this as far as I’m concerned!"

The Multivette® 600 has been designed and prepared for small blood volumes of 600 μl. Blood is collected in a practically closed state, making use of natural venous pressure. This makes collection extremely simple and gentle. The blood sample can be centrifuged directly in the Multivette® 600. This simplifies blood collection for small animals and saves time.
”Today my tin opener* put me into that box again and took me away. When they finally let me out, they stroked me first. Then something amazing happened: They held this thing on my fur that basically changed colour from white to red, they stroked me again and then I was allowed to go back home. It really wasn’t that bad.”

Especially for very small animals and difficult vein conditions, every drop of blood counts. The special Micro needle ensures that every drop of blood flows into the sample tube and does not clot beforehand. The correct sample tube can be selected according to the expected sample volume.
”Hi everyone! My mistress was worried as I haven’t felt well for the past few days. My vet first took blood from me to find out why. She used a special needle for me that I barely felt. I really didn’t notice anything. My mistress was also much more relaxed than usual. That must have been because it was over really quickly – she doesn’t like the sight of blood…"
