One click is all it takes to minimize exposure to hazardous drugs and maintain the sterility of the patient mix.
With the ChemoLock needlefree closed system transfer device (CSTD), it has never been easier to keep yourself safe from exposure to hazardous drugs.
Treating cancer patients takes compassion—it shouldn’t take a toll on your health. But the fact is, while chemotherapy is the backbone of medical oncology, these powerful medications—along with many others—are extremely toxic to the clinicians who handle them. Prolonged exposure to hazardous drug vapors, drips, or spills has been shown to lead to hair loss, skin rashes, infertility, miscarriages, birth defects, and even forms of cancer. It doesn’t have to be that way.
The system’s automatic self-sealing technology requires no cumbersome assembly, and the bonded components cannot be accidentally disconnected.
In response to the well-documented risks associated with handling hazardous drugs, ICU Medical has developed ChemoLock to create a needlefree mechanically and microbiologically closed system for the safe handling of hazardous drugs. ChemoLock’s intuitive and easy-to-use system locks with an audible click, ensuring a safe and secure connection has been made to minimize exposure to hazardous drugs and protect the patient preparation from external contamination.
Safe Handling Starts in the Pharmacy.
With the ChemoLock system’s breakthrough “click to lock” technology, you don’t have to sacrifice efficiency for patient and clinician safety.
In today’s fast-paced pharmacy environment, every second counts and every preparation has to be right. ChemoLock can help. That’s because ChemoLock’s simple and intuitive needlefree design allows the system to be accessed and sealed with a single motion, reducing the potential for insecure or unsafe connections that may jeopardize clinician and patient safety.
The needlefree, mechanically and microbiologically closed system fits seamlessly into your workflow to help you minimize exposure to hazardous medications during reconstitution and preparation, while simultaneously preventing any outside environmental contaminants from getting into the mix.
ChemoLock helps speed preparation times by eliminating the need to
assemble multiple components.
The system snaps together with an
audible click to ensure a safe and secure connection. Every time.
To maximize patient safety, ChemoLock maintains the sterility of the drug during transport from pharmacy to nursing.
