Enhancement to the Merit Advance Needle

AdvanceNeedArrow Merit Medical is pleased to announce an improvement to our Advance® Needles, used to facilitate entry into tissue and vessel walls during interventional procedures. Advance Needle hubs have always featured a small bump to indicate the position of the needle bevel. Beginning in June 2014, the ergonomically designed hub on each Merit Advance Needle will now contain a printed arrow to visually indicate the position of the bevel. The addition of the arrow now gives doctors both a visual and tactile indicator to use to determine the position of the bevel. needlechart
