The Medi-Dose Group Injection Port 4

EPS, Inc., a member of The Medi-Dose Group, announces the latest generation of its injection port: the latex-free Injection Port 4. Injection Port 4 is ideal for use with catheters, extension sets, reconstitution devices-anywhere you need a Luer-Lok cutoff or injection site. EPS, Inc. has built on its earlier port technology and designed Injection Port 4 with a completely transparent bottom, allowing the practitioner to immediately detect blood flashback. The nonremovable, flat, compressed port allows repetitive injections with relatively large needles yet reseals. Injection Port 4 devices are individually packaged, so you can use only what you need. Each package has low-gauge plastic shielding for easy opening and helps prevent "touch contamination" and other possible compromises in sterility. Quantity pricing is available on as few as five cases.
