DECAP devices enable users to safely uncap, recap and dispose of needles with one hand, in any environment, in an easy, ergonomic horizontal motion. DECAP devices are also easily disinfected and can be used inside Biosafety hoods. For those working in the chaotic and task-repetitive environments of healthcare, veterinary care and research, DECAP eliminates the risk of needle-stick injuries by removing the users' fingers from the sharp end of the needle, while enabling more efficient workflow.
DECAP designs easy-to-use protective devices to eliminate needlestick injuries for millions of healthcare, veterinary and research workers
