Luer activated and capped safety connector as needle-free injection port in IV applications
Safsite is a needle-free valve that can be used for infusion and transfusion therapy. It is designed for aspiration, injection, or gravity flow of fluids upon insertion of a male luer fitting.
The valve allows multiple usage through activation of the needle-free connector by attaching a luer slip / luer lock connector such as a syringe.
Capped safety connector for infusion systems
Developed as needle-free injection port in IV applications.1
Ready to use
Due to its cap, the safety connector is ready to use for first application.1
Luer-Slip and Luer-Lock compatible
Safe and secure access to infusion systems and compatible with Luer-Slip and Luer-Lock.1,3,5,6
Safe access through automatic function
The Luer fitting of a syringe or infusion line opens when connected and closes automatically when disconnected.1,3,6
Can be connected to all infusion systems:
- Infusion and transfusion administration sets, tubings and lines
- Stopcock systems
- Central venous catheters, i.e. catheters and cannulas.1,3,5,6
Can be used with disinfectants and is lipid resistant.1,4,7,8
Pressure resistance up to 3.1 bar.1
The device can be used for all patients for which infusion therapy is prescribed. No gender or age related limitations. Safsite can be used for adults, pediatric and neonates.1
The "needle-free" alternative to injection ports, which prevents infections from needle-stick injuries.1,2,3,6
No generation of particles (no punching-out of particles). 1,2,3,6
The product is designed to prevent the escape of fluid or blood and the entry of air. 1,3,6
The risk of infection for patient and nursing staff is reduced. 1,3,6
Not manufactured with PVC, DEHP or Latex / natural rubber.1
When disconnected (syringe or infusion line), it closes automatically.
If a stopcock is inadvertently left open, the system is nonetheless closed.
Injection and withdrawal in a closed infusion system – simple, hygienic and timesaving.
Improved safety when changing systems.3,4,5,6
Medication Error (right dose of medication due to flow rate)
Allows optimal and appropriate flow rates.1
