Introcan Safety® 3 Closed Safety IV Catheter with Multi-Access Blood Control Septum

Introcan Safety® 3 is a peripheral IV catheter with a passive fully automatic needlestick protection and multi-access blood control septum that helps to protect clinicians and patients from blood exposure. It is a single-use device to generate intravascular and tissue access to sample blood, monitor blood pressure, or administer fluids and blood intravascularly. Introcan Safety® 3 is also indicated for subcutaneous infusion therapies and 325 psi power injector applications (14G – 24G).
