In this week’s news from the world of medical device vendors, MedNet has launched three new Tuohy-Borst adapters. The vendor said the solution provides a secure seal around catheters and other medical devices without backflow of bodily fluids. This makes them suitable for a variety of interventional and diagnostic procedures, MedNet said.
Tuohy-Borst adapters are designed to help reduce blood loss through catheters for applications such as atherectomy, thrombectomy, catheter ablation and external direct access catheter ports. As endoscopy port seals, Tuohy-Borst adapter helps prevent loss of liquid or gas in endoscopy access ports and can also be used as laser device access port/ RF for closure of varicose veins and peripheral veins.
In addition to the standard Tuohy-Borst adapter (#10200007), MedNet also offers an adapter with female Luer Lock side port (#10200008) and a Tuohy-Borst adapter with 15 cm extension with female Luer Lock (# 10200009). All models are available in 9 French (Tuohy-Borst connector) and 3.1mm (male luer lock). The body of the adapter is made of polycarbonate, which provides high transparency and good impact resistance, according to MedNet.
With the Tuohy Borst adapter, MedNet expands its wide range of valves, which also includes Luer-activated valves, needle-free valves, dual-control valves, pressure-activated valves and Y-PTCA connectors.
