Atlanta, GA, February 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- MediPurpose(tm), a manufacturer and master distributor of medical products, today announced the publication of a new white paper, Safe in Common's "10 Golden Rules of Safety": How Well Does SurgiLance(tm) Safety Lancet Compare?
The white paper outlines sharps safety advocate Safe in Common's guidelines for sharps safety devices and evaluates how well the SurgiLance(tm) safety lancet adheres to them. Further, it provides references to publications that provide additional background and evidence for the claims and arguments made on SurgiLance's behalf for each rule.
"If Safe in Common's 'Top 10 Golden Rules for Safety' can be considered a scorecard for sharps safety devices, the SurgiLance safety lancet arguably earned a perfect score, and this white paper explains why we believe so," said MediPurpose founder and CEO Patrick Yi.
"As a manufacturer and master distributor of two safety needlestick devices-the SurgiLance safety lancet and the babyLance(tm) safety heelstick-MediPurpose closely follows and supports such advocacy," said Yi. "In fact, the original SurgiLance One-Step fingerstick device was introduced in the United States at approximately the same time as the passage of the U.S. Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act in 2000."
Yi also said that both SurgiLance and babyLance have U.S. FDA 510(k) clearances with sharps prevention indications, which permits MediPurpose to legally market them as "safety" devices in the United States.
