    Hi there,

    Just wondering when taking blood cultures, what products are being used to decontaminate the vein? We use chloraprep 1.5ml  applicator but some staff are saying 1.5ml is insufficient and not happy with applicator. Love to hear what products are being used as we are trying to reduce contamination and would love to hear if others are happy with the product they are using.

    Thanking you,

    Kathleen
