Sharps Cube

Needle sticks are a major health problem that can spread disease. A sharps container has been designed for use in conditions of microgravity. The sharp end of the needle is placed in one of the many holes in the cube. The hub of the needle will then fasten securely at the face of the cube. Multiple needles can be inserted into each face of the cube. The Sharps Cube can then float around with out danger of anyone getting a needle stick. Different sized cubes with different sized channels can be produced for various needle gauges. The cubes can also be color coded one for clean and one dirty needles.
