No. The needle we use to draw your blood is sterile. Each needle is packaged individually and used only once.
The cap is always removed immediately before the needle is used. Immediately after its use, the needle is discarded according to strict biohazard waste disposal regulations.
When you have a blood test, nothing goes into your system. Your specimen is taken into a tube that has a vacuum. When the needle tip goes into your skin, the blood in your vein rushes-in to fill the vacuum. It is a safe, sealed and self-contained procedure. All the tubes and containers used for patients' specimens are used only once and then discarded.
Safety is extremely important to us. We follow strict safety guidelines and take every precaution to protect your safety.
