Atlanta, GA, August 01, 2013 --( MediPurpose(tm), a manufacturer and master distributor of medical products, today announced the publication of a new white paper, “Reinventing a Better Safety Heelstick: A Summary of babyLance(tm) Features -- Design and Validation."

This white paper summarizes key design features -- and the processes by which they were validated -- for the all-new babyLance safety heelstick, including its:
