Title: Liquid transfer apparatus

Abstract: A liquid transfer device for use in the safe transfer of fluids from a needle tipped syringe to at least one test tube. The device is equipped with a slidable top able to be removed from the device for placement of the test tubes into a carrier on the device. The top is provided with at least one guide hole aligned above the test tubes for directing the needle of the syringe into the test tube supported by the carrier. The top of the device is positioned below the top of the sides of the device thereby creating a protective lip for preventing errant needles from straying during use by a health care professional.
