Needlefree Medication Reconstitution

The typical method for reconstitution of lyophilized medication requires the puncture of a rubber vial stoppers by a needle filled with diluents.  The medication in the vial is mixed and the needle is withdrawn and then used to inject into the patient.  The puncture of the rubber septum can dull the tip of the needle prior to injecting into patient and provides unnecessary opportunity for a needlestick accident.  Newer technologies do not require a needle.

 

Technology exists to transfer medication from vials to syringe or from vial to vial without ever using a needle!

Scenes like this one create unnecessary exposure to needlesticks.  Technology exists to transfer medication from vials to syringe or from vial to vial without ever using a needle!

  • 0.2 Micron, Hydrophobic air venting membrane traps aerosolized meds, provides sterile air displacement and helps protect personnel from harmful cytotoxic exposure.
  • Luer lock port aids in safer, more secure syringe changes.
  • Sharp, thin piercing spike minimizes coring and permits easy penetration of rubber stoppered vials.
  • Hinged port cap and easy-gripping spike sheath help maintain sterility before use and ensure a closed system for disposal.

 

Dispensing-Spike II Reconstitution Device

The Dispensing-Spike II Reconstitution Device is designed for medication from multiple dose IV vials, while providing sterile air filtration. It features a large, 0.2-micron hydrophobic air filter to trap aerosoled meds and minimize blowback. The streamlined construction creates short venting and fluid pathways, and the sharp, thin, piercing spike minimizes coring and permits easy penetration of rubber stoppered vials. The luer lock port design maintains a secure closure between the device and they syringe, while the hinged cap and easy-gripping spike sheath help maintain sterilization before use.
