The Medscape line of mobile stands were conceived out of the need to design a product specifically for today’s phlebotomists. For as long as the profession has been around, phlebotomists have had to adapt items borrowed from other professions to fit their workflow.
In our early research, we found that phlebotomists are often left to haul their supplies and patient blood samples in totes – while having to do blood draws for an entire hospital floor. Identifying that no phlebotomist works in quite the same way, we worked to make the mobile stands as configurable as possible and focused on maneuverability, safety, ergonomics, and quality.
