Westmed Mosquito® Minikit 0.5cc 15 U Balanced Heparin
Arterial Blood Gas Sampler. As arterial blood gas collection has evolved overthe past three decades, the presence of air in the sample and inconsistent sample sizes have remained the primary causes of specimen contamination.Now the revolutionary Mosquito Arterial Blood Gas Sampler redefines collection accuracy with a proprietary,anaerobic design that virtually eliminates the potential for pre-analytical sampling errors. Airless and effortless, the Mosquito Arterial Blood Gas Sampler sets new standards in blood gas collection. The Mosquito sampler provides a fixed sample size with no plunger to set and no tapping required to remove air bubbles. As a result, user interaction is reduced and standardization is enhanced whenever blood collection is performed.
The proprietary, dual lumen design features an easy-togrip external barrel, similar in diameter to the familiar 3ml syringe. The unique inner collection lumen ensures an exact sample size every time. Arterial pressure fills the Mosquito sampler rapidly, so flash back and fill time occur almost simultaneously.
With minimal mixing, the special balanced Lithium/Zinc heparin formulation results in no CO
dilutional error, and only nominal effect on specific analytes
