About Product

Bionector Octopus extension sets

To support the MHRA Alert MDA/2010/073, Vygon offers a wide range of multi-lumen extension sets with integrated
anti-reflux valves (ARVs). These prevent the inadvertent backtracking and subsequent risk of drug overdose when running
multiple infusions at different rates.

Drug loss prevention
The Bionector Octopus range is produced with biocompatible PUR tubing to help prevent the risk of drug loss
which can occur with PVC tubing.(8) Central lines and syringe drivers do not contain PVC within the fluid pathway,
with Bionector you can be assured you’re not putting PVC into the patient’s IV circuit. Issues with PVC drug
interactions are supported by Bionector’s drug compatibility studies (Study Six).

No common dead space
Multi-lumen Octopus extension sets maintain separate fluid pathways right up to the catheter hub, preventing the
mixing of incompatible drugs within the extension set.

Reduced catheter manipulation
The range is equipped with a freely rotating male luer-locking collar to enable easier connection to the IV catheter’s
female luer, helping reduce mechanical phlebitis and associated complications.

Polyurethane, transparent, flexible extension tube for IV catheters (mainly peripheral IV catheters) with Bionector and flat clamp.
Length: 10 cm

Used for peripheral cannula care, Octopus 1 has the following advantages:
– Eliminates the risk of access-associated needle-stick injury
– Keeps a closed system (no risk of blood reflux)
– Reduces the risk of cannula movement in the vein and thus the risk of mechanical venous irritation.
– Negates the need to use the cannula injection port (non disinfectable) while Bionector is easily disinfectable
– PUR tubing material (no PVC and DEHP-free)

Bionector can be disinfected with most of the antiseptic solutions (example: 70% alcohol). Avoid using antiseptic containing both alcohol and oxygenated water.
