ISO 80369 Standards on Small-Bore Tubing Connectors Inch Forward Toward Release

The luer connector has been one of the most common types of small-bore connectors used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities to link or join medical devices, components and accessories for the purpose of delivering fluids or gases. But just as the luer's universal design has allowed for ease of use in diverse patient care applications, so too has it made possible the inadvertent connection of wrong systems with unfortunate consequences to patients. An international effort has begun to develop and implement standards for non-interchangeable connectors for small bore medical connectors to prevent tubing misconnections and consequently reduce patient injuries and deaths. Nordson MEDICAL is actively participating in the development of these standards and is keeping the latest news on our website.

Nordson MEDICAL presents needlefree swabable valves designed to combat infection in medical applications!

Nordson MEDICAL, a 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. Nordson MEDICAL's needlefree swabable valves' normally closed system negates the need for caps in order to reduce the risk of infection.

Nordson MEDICAL introduces the BPL Series of tubing connectors, a new alternative to luer fittings.

The luer is a standard tubing connector prevalent in medical devices largely due to its ease of use and affordable nature. Unfortunately, however, the common use of this standard design has resulted in the risk of tubing misconnections within healthcare environments. Alternatives to these fittings have therefore begun to increase in popularity.

The BPL Series of connectors incorporates a quarter-turn design that is commonly used in blood pressure applications – particularly in blood pressure cuffs. Features such as Nordson MEDICAL’s patented 10-point grip coupled with the BPL’s winged male fitting provide for top-of-the-line ergonomics, and the snap-on connection presents the end user with confidence that a secure fit has been made. These attributes can be crucial in healthcare environments due to hindrances such as dark rooms, baggy rubber gloves, and the potential for situations that don’t allow time for fumbling.

Nordson MEDICAL introduces a technologically advanced series of ports for the single-use bags used to transfer media and drug compounds in the biopharmaceutical industry.

Nordson MEDICAL's new high tech series of bag ports offers a variety of benefits new to the biopharmaceutical industry through a combination of Value Pharma™ resin and a unique design. Value Pharma™ resin holds credentials that many manufacturers deem fundamental, such as animal derivative free qualification, USP Class VI certification, and the guarantee of heat sealing and conformance with polyethylene bags. The resin then goes even further to provide a strong, 24-hour resistance to alcohol stress cracking.

Their unique design sets these new ports apart from existing solutions. They not only conform with frequently utilized tubing sizes from 1/8" (3.2 mm) to 1" (25.4 mm), but they are also designed to ASME and BPE ferrule specifications, allowing them to work with leading industry fittings, filters and other devices. However, the most notable of the bag ports’ specifications are those that are new to the industry – the parabolic lead and the alignment ribs. These two features, respectively, reduce the amount of time it takes to drain a bag by 24 percent and improve flow dynamics through the port.
