Infection Prevention Products
The DualCap System consists of two caps designed to help prevent intraluminal contamination, as well as cross-contamination, especially important for IV catheter use over extended dwell times.
Our Medallion syringes are designed to facilitate compliance with national safety goals that require labeling of all medications on and off the sterile field. Medallion syringes come in seven color options with custom printing, or a frosted field for writing information directly on the syringe barrel.
For quick and safe fluid waste elimination, the Backstop+ and MiniStop+™ disposal systems both have seal-tight lids to prevent fluid leakage after a procedure. The disposal systems also come with a temporary sharps holder.
The ShortStop Advantage has all of the features of the original ShortStop temporary sharps holder but with the addition of side access for holding sharps devices in a safe and secure horizontal orientation. Fully loaded syringes will not tip or bend when secured in the ShortStop Advantage side access port.
Hemodynamic Monitoring Products
Meritrans DTXPLUS come in a range of single, double, and triple disposable transducer sets. They are available with the Safedraw safe arterial blood sampling system. They are designed with Easyvent® – a unique cap that allows clinicians to prime and zero the stopcock without removing the cap and exposing the line to the environment.
