Contact Us

The BD Vacutainer® Luer-Lok™ Access Device provides sterile, secure and safe specimen sampling. It offers the security of a threaded, locking luer connection, replacing a luer-slip device. It is compatible with a female luer connection or needleless IV site designed for luer lock access.

Features and Benefits
Improving blood sample quality from IVC collection

Improving blood sample quality from IVC collection

The BD Vacutainer® Luer-Lok™ Access Device (LLAD) can replace other methods such as syringes and luer adapters, and can reduce haemolysis rates from 8.1% to 1.4%. (58 samples out of 716 to 9 samples out of 630)1. Combining the BD LLAD with a sterilised discard tube together with a partial draw tube reduces haemolysis further2.

Improving urine sample collection through Foley catheters

Improving urine sample collection through Foley catheters

The BD Vacutainer® Luer-Lok™ Access Device enables the transfer of a urine sample directly from a Foley catheter to the Urinalysis/ Microbiology determination tube. This means fewer steps, less sample manipulation and reduced risk of contamination.3

Security of the threaded BD Luer-Lok™ mechanism helps ensure that a closed system is maintained. This allows sample integrity to be maintained and can help prevent microbial overgrowth or false positives.
