MicroClave® is a needlefree device with neutral displacement straight fluid path design, split-septum and minimal dead space that will help protect your patients and clinical staff by providing a safe and effective microbial barrier.
The design of your needlefree intravenous (I.V.) connector plays a substantial role in your ability to limit hospital-acquired bloodstream infections (HA-BSI). The neutral displacement straight fluid path design, split-septum and minimal dead space of the MicroClave® work together to help minimize blood reflux into the tip of the catheter upon connection or disconnection of the luer. Not only does MicroClave® provide enhanced patient safety through innovative technology, but it has also been proven to provide an effective microbial barrier against bacteria transfer and contamination.
The MicroClave® can be used on all peripheral, arterial, and central venous catheters for the administration of IV fluids or medications, and can be used with blood products. Because it is a neutral displacement device, MicroClave® does not require a change in clinical practice or technique and may help you address recent concerns raised by the FDA regarding the safety of positive displacement connectors.
