TEGO Needlefree Connector
Patented needlefree technology that provides a safe and effective microbial barrier for haemodialysis and apheresis applications
The Tego needlefree connector allows for significantly less catheter hub manipulation and minimises the risk of catheter contamination and catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs). Reducing CRBSIs can reduce complications for your patients and costly scheduling disruptions for your clinic.
Straight fluid path accommodates flow rates of greater than 600 mL/min
Remains in place during the entire haemodialysis or apheresis treatment period
Validated for continuous patient use for up to seven days
Silicone seal remains closed when not activated, closing the fluid path and eliminating blood exposure
The Tego connector creates a mechanically and microbiologically closed system when attached to the hub of a catheter, eliminating open catheter hubs and lowering the chance of contamination and infection.
Tego's saline flush option allows you to reduce risks and costs associated with heparin use.
How it works
- When Tego is not being accessed, the silicone seal forms a safe, swabbable barrier to bacterial ingress.
- Attaching Tego to a dialysis blood line activates the straight internal fluid path and creates a mechanically and microbiologically closed system.
