SUPERIOR SAFETY AND EASE OF USE THE PREMIUM EQUASHIELD CSTD OFFERS SUPERIOR SAFETY AND EASE-OF-USE
for the compounding and administration of hazardous drugs, backed with clinically substantiated data on reduction of surface contamination with antineoplastic agentsand is faster to compound a dose than alternative systems .Used by the number one hospital in both Europe and U.S., Equashield® covers more routes of exposure than alternative systems and is substantiated to FDA and defined in FDA’s ONB code cleared labeling as Preventing Microbial Ingress up to 7 days[*]
COVERS MORE ROUTES OF EXPOSURE
Equashield’s proprietary Syringe Unit has an airtight enclosure that encapsulates the syringe barrel, isolates the unique syringe plunger rod and provides the flawless in use feeling. Equashield’s unique design it is the only system that prevents syringe plunger contamination by hazardous drugs, which is a major route of exposure during routine drug preparations and IV pushes. Studies in the U.S.[3.4] and Europeprovide substantial scientific evidence for the presence of high levels of drug residuals (Cyclophosphamide) on the exposed plungers and open barrels of regular syringes. In turn, this exposure contaminated gloves and other work environment, whereas in the same studies[3.4]no
QUICKER COMPOUNDING, WHILE PREVENTING SPILLS
The connector is factory welded to the Equashield® Syringe Unit saving valuable setup time compared to time spent on opening two packages and assembling a connector onto an off the shelf syringe.Additionally, the welded Equashield® Syringe Unit prevents opportunity for luer disconnection and spills.
NOTHING IN – NOTHING OUT
The Vial Adaptor’s elastic membrane port has been substantiated for up to 10 connections with the Syringe Unit without leaks or drug residuals on its surfacesand without transfer of environmental contaminants into the vial[7, 8]. The Equashield® system has been substantiated to the FDA and defined in FDA cleared labeling as Preventing Microbial Ingress for up to 7 days* . This is evident in the extreme tests performed, where the Vial Adaptor’s membranes of growth media filled vials were inoculated with bacteria and accessed up to 10 times during 7 days with a total of 770 Syringe Units.The Vial Adaptor is further equipped with a unique telescoping mechanism that guides its spike to
SINGLE MOTION CONNECTORS
Just a single straight motion is required to connect and disconnect any Equashield® components.The large flow channels in all system components enable quick transfers with just a little force.
