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.
