Vascular Luer lock cap products are caps that are used to seal the Luer lock connector on a vascular access device, such as an IV catheter or a syringe. These caps are typically made of plastic and have a locking mechanism that securely attaches to the Luer lock connector, preventing any leakage of the fluid or medication being administered. They are used primarily in medical settings to ensure the safe and accurate delivery of fluids and medications to patients and to prevent contamination of a sterile IV site.
Molded Products manufactures a variety of accessories that work with the catheter which allows you to control your entire process from beginning to end. Our products are individually packaged, sterile, and capped to allow the products to maintain sterility after it is removed from the packaging. Additionally, they are non-pyrogenic with the cap in place.
Luer lock caps are used to seal the Luer lock connector and prevent any leakage or accidental disconnection of the device.
Some specific applications and uses of vascular Luer lock cap products include:
They can also be used in research and laboratory settings for handling fluids and samples, and in industry settings for the handling of liquids and gases in a controlled manner.
When either repeated or long-term access to the bloodstream is required in your patient care facility, a vascular access device or peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) is required. In short, it is simply an access port that allows continuous access to the bloodstream making the healthcare experience one that doesn’t have to be feared.
This PICC is a thin, flexible tube, often made of polyurethane or other medical-grade materials that are inserted into a vein to treat diseases or to perform surgical procedures.
When repetitive, but not continuous access to the bloodstream is required, an end cap allows for the intermittent discontinuance of the procedure and to easily begin again when needed.
A Luer lock cap, unlike a standard end cap, is also known as a dead-end cap, tip cap, or catheter cap. They provide a recessed mechanism that minimizes the possibility of contamination for maximum patient safety.
The standard sterile male Luer lock cap or fitting provides a non-injectable end cap and is used to cap off female Luer lock caps. This sterile cap is non-vented and does not have an access port.
Also known as Luer lock plugs, these caps are commonly used in the medical field to provide a quick connect and disconnect for fluid lines and tubing. It is also designed to lock onto the Luer lock connector, providing a secure seal and preventing any leakage or accidental disconnection of the device.
They come in a variety of sizes to fit different types of Luer lock connectors.
A Luer lock cap set is a collection of caps that typically includes a variety of different-sized caps that can be used to fit different types of Luer lock connectors.
