Baxa Corporation on Oct. 10 announced its launch of the PadLock Set Saver, the first and only aseptic IV administration set storage solution that can be swabbed and re-used according to the company.
PadLock provides a seal for the end of the administration set, preventing contamination when the set is not being used for infusion. Effective for multiple uses, the Set Saver attaches to an IV administration set and replaces the need for sterile, single-use caps.
The innovative PadLock device is designed to promote best practice for aseptic IV administration set disconnections, preventing touch contamination and securing the IV line in between drug administrations.
The Set Saver also eliminates the use of IV administration set caps, which are a known choking hazard. The PadLock Set Saver provides temporary aseptic storage of the IV administration line when disconnected from the patient, replacing the need for disposable caps to maintain aseptic procedure.
Baxa Corporation is a world leader in developing innovative technology for the safe handling, packaging and administration of fluid medications in hospital and alternate-care settings. Renowned for enhancing patient safety and improving processes within pharmacy settings, with the PadLock Set Saver, Baxa brings expertise and experience to the patient bedside.
