"Recent research(1) confirms passive safety engineered devices are most effective for needlestick injury prevention," said Tom Sutton, Vice President, Vascular Access and IV Systems for B.

"The Introcan Safety® 3 is designed to provide clinicians with not only an effective passive needlestick safety device, but also an added layer of safety and control with a bidirectional blood control valve to aid in the prevention of blood exposure each time the device is accessed."

The Introcan Safety® 3 features all elements of B. Braun's existing and proven Introcan Safety® IV Catheter. From insertion to advancing the catheter to needle removal, the Introcan Safety® 3 is designed to help protect clinicians and patients from NSIs as the device cannot be bypassed or activated inadvertently.

B. Braun's Introcan Safety® 3 will provide protection through:

  • Passive Safety Needle Shield to aid in the prevention of NSIs
  • Multiple Access Blood Control Valve to aid in the prevention of blood exposure
  • Integrated Stabilization Platform to improve catheter stability and minimize movement within the vessel
