A New Era
The Ally provides relief from the repetitive blood sample needle sticks that are typical of inpatient hospital stays.
Seamlessly attaching to PIV catheters placed in hand, forearm, and antecubital sites, Ally connects to the catheter using the traditional methods used when connecting fluids or medications to an IV.
How will The Ally benefit areas of your hospital.
Pitting edema common - difficult draw
Central Lines no longer draw
IV doesn't draw or have medication needs as priority
Often takes significantly higher amount of time for phlebotomists to collect blood
Far smaller vascular then adults
Prone to collapsing veins and hematomas
Heightened fear and difficulty with blood draws
Often requires more than one person to hold infant or peds patients
Neuro ICU Patient
Often very difficult draws due to immobility
Patient can be heavily disoriented requiring additional time and assistance
Often long stay patients w/mulitple venipuncture's and greater hematoma occurrences limiting sites for IV and blood draw
Patients prescribed heparin therapy require far more frequent blood draws
Often don't like drawing from the IV with heparin medication due to higher concentration of anticoag in blood site
Higher propensity to hematoma's due to venipuncture
Patient & Staff Dissatisfaction
Decreasing venipuncture requirements for patients
Decreases occurrences of hemolysis and redraws
Decreases necessity for high volume of phlebotomist staff
Decreases instances of "dirty" needle sticks for staff
How was learning to use the Ally device for you?
"I was able to easily use the Ally after a brief demonstration and I was comfortable with the use of the device after just one draw."
In your opinion, how will Ally affect patient experience?
"This will be a better option for the patient due to the decreased need for venipuncture. It also allows for more control of timed labs, which is often difficult due to the unavailability of the phlebotomy staff for timed labs."
How do you see Ally changing your practice habits
"I believe that it will improve patient care due to more control over the timelines of draws. I also feel that this will reduce the reliance on the phlebotomy department in times of staffing shortages as well as the ease of training of ancillary staff for use of this device."
"We have been loving the Ally device, they have been working perfectly. This morning I drew blood easily using the Ally – no hemolysis, no discomfort, the participant was happy to not need another two pokes, and my study coordinator was excited they didn’t need to replace the IV again."

Fixing the Issues,
Keeping the Practices.
The Ally was crafted to enhance blood draw practices without having to greatly alter the methods that practitioners know and are comfortable with.
Ally overcomes complicated vein structures without having the collection tube bend or break. Through a patented design, Ally’s reinforced internal tubing protects the structure of the tube so that bumping into vein walls won't cause the device to lose its functional abilities.
Collecting blood through The Ally helps us avoid the discomfort of blood draws, the danger of blood draws and offers top quality samples and reliability.
