Qosina is pleased to announce the addition of three competitively priced 9 FR Hemostasis Valves (#80325, #80326, #80327) to their line of Guide Wire Kit Accessories. All three feature a clear polycarbonate body that allows for fluid visualization, and a silicone valve that creates a seal to prevent backflow. Equipped with frosted webbing to enable easier air bubble identification, the valves have a rotating male luer to minimize tubing kinks, and a female luer sideport for flushing or checking pressure. Hemostasis Valve #80325 features a smaller cap with a low profile and #80326 has a larger cap for easy handling. Equipped with two hemostasis valves, #80327 features the larger caps and accepts multiple guide wires.
Qosina is pleased to announce the addition of Peelable and Header styled Breathable Pouches (#91224 - 91232) to their extensive line of sterilization pouches and accessories. Formed with a 3/8 inch seal, the pouches offer puncture protection and abrasion resistance. The Peelable Breathable Pouches (#91224 - 91227) are available in sizes ranging from 13 inch x 15 inch to 24 inch x 30 inch. The white side is made of uncoated medical-grade Tyvek and the clear side is made of PET and 2 mil LDPE. These pouches feature an easily accessible unprinted corner peel and are suitable for ETO, Gamma, and E-Beam sterilization. The Breathable Pouches with Header (#91228 – 91232) are available in sizes ranging from 10 inch x 15 inch to 19 inch x 30 inch, including the lip of the bag. Made of 4 mil LLDPE with a 1073B heat-seal coated Tyvek header, these pouches include peel instructions at the bottom of the header which indicate “Peel to Open,” and are suitable for ETO and Gamma sterilization. Both styles provide a clean peelability that helps minimize fiber tears and particulate release. In stock and available for immediate delivery, the pouches come unprinted to allow you to add your own label. Custom options in pre-printing, size, shape, and material are available. Qosina also offers additional items for your sterilization process, including sterilization indicators, CSR wraps, autoclave bags, and self-sealing sterilization pouches.
Qosina is pleased to present the latest innovation in component technology, a One Handed Hemostasis Valve Y Connector (#80448) that allows independent manipulation of multiple guidewires. The genuine one hand control lever action allows for lock and release with light fingertip pressure for three positions; open, semi-open, and closed. A satisfyingly powerful ‘click’ clearly identifies the valve position by acoustic and tactile feedback enabling easy and efficient operation. The housing is made from high quality polycarbonate and polyoxymethylene, which has both high clarity and temperature resistance. The silicone valve fits 0 FR – 9 FR (0 inch-0.118 inch) (0 mm-3 mm) guidewires and aids in controlling backflow. The rotating male luer lock minimizes tubing kinks, while the female luer lock sideport provides the ability to flush out the line or check pressure. Wire Lock Adapters (#80449 and #80450) work in conjunction with this Hemostasis Valve for applications involving multiple guidewires. These adapters feature an integrated lock and release function, which enables independent wire manipulation by utilizing one or more adapters. Simply clip the adapter on the Hemostasis Valve and lock the wire into the adapter to hold it in position while inserting or using other wires.
Qosina recently added a Swabbable Needleless Injection Site #80189 to their line. Unlike other needleless sites that allow for bidirectional flow, this site incorporates a one way valve enabling this component to be used for injection only and will prevent retrograde flow. When the connection is removed, the valve will reseal against backflow even when used with viscous solutions. This injection site features a needleless female luer port to a male luer slip and is equipped with a luer activated valve that allows any standard male luer to open the connection. Composed of Polycarbonate, Silicone and Polyisoprene, the connector is made of biocompatible materials. All materials are latex-free, DEHP-Free and PVC-Free. By eliminating the use of sharp needles for accessing IV lines, the needleless connector is designed to prevent accidental needle sticks. It poses an economical alternative to other needleless sites and is available with a low minimum purchase requirement. The luer fittings are also compatible with the ISO 594 luer standards for both standard male luer and male luer slip fittings.
Qosina recently announced the addition of a competitively priced In-Line Check Valve (#80190) to their extensive line of stock components. In stock and available for immediate delivery, the DEHP Free, acrylic In-Line Check Valve features a Latex Free silicone diaphragm that allows flow in one direction and will prevent retrograde flow (back pressure tested to 45 psi). The In-Line Check Valve has a cracking pressure of 0 psi- 0.7 psi, and features a versatile design making it a superior choice for inclusion by original equipment manufacturers as a component in various applications. Featuring a thin profile and low priming volume, the In-Line Check Valve has a white inlet and clear outlet. The tubing ports measure 0.13 inch – 0.138 inch OD (3.3 mm – 3.5 mm).
Qosina is pleased to announce the addition of an Anti-Slip Boot (#51599) to its extensive line of stock components. The new Anti-Slip Boot helps prevent luer fittings from slipping apart, and works with most standard luer fittings. Made from medical grade silicone and applicable for autoclave, gamma and EtO sterilizing, the Anti-Slip Boot measures 11/32 inch ID x ½ inch OD x ¾ inch (0.343 inch x 0.5 inch x 0.75 inch, 8.7 mm x 12.7 mm x 19.05 mm). Designed to maintain the integrity of a luer fitting assembly, this simple solution helps prevent loss and contamination due to accidental disconnection of luer parts.
