New videos on collection of blood for blood cultures

November 14, 2022



We have produced a series of new videos on the collection of blood for blood cultures- Videos are available in English (voice over + subtitles) and in French (English voice over, text and subtitles in French).

They cover open (for neonates and infants) and closed (for children and adults) sampling techniques for blood culture sampling via venipuncture and via a newly inserted catheter, so 4 techniques in total.
