13 Jan 2014
Fort Collins, Colo. – Value Plastics, a Nordson MEDICAL company and premier supplier of precision plastic components, introduces a cost efficient needlefree swabable valve series featuring higher flow rates, low priming volumes, and a straight through design for unobstructed flow.
Designed for the injection and aspiration of fluids, particularly for IV applications, urology, blood processing, cardiology, pharma, and disposable biopharm, the hermetic septum seal reduces the risk of biofilm formation and contamination in an industry where infection is a particular concern. These valves are available in widely-used polycarbonate and copolyester materials, and are compatible with all industry standard luer syringes and connectors, validating them as the ideal component solution for the OEM market. Value Plastics’ needlefree swabable valves‘ normally closed system negates the need for caps in order to reduce the risk of infection.
