Needlefree Swabable Valves

Designed to Combat Infection in Medical Applications

Nordson MEDICAL offers 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 flushing and drainage systems, 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 industry standard luer syringes and connectors.

The complimentary valved male luers are designed to attach directly to tubing during set assembly. They eliminate dripping and leakage when disconnected, doing away with the need for clamps.

Instrument Tees

Compatible with Existing Instrumentation

SF Series Instrument Tees work well with existing pharmaceutical instrumentation and are available in 1/2" and 3/4" tubing IDs. Critical to a successful single-use implementation, the fittings work for pressure testing, fluid transfer, and filtration applications. The configuration is a standard 1.5" TC style interface on the instrument side and tee style for the fluid path. The fittings also utilize Nordson MEDICAL’s popular 600 series barb, which is ideally suited for silicone and TPE tubing. Constructed of either Nordson MEDICAL’s standard polyethylene resin or as demand warrants, RENOLIT SOLMED Granuflex 4301 resin, the instrument tees utilize materials found in many single-use bags being used around the world.

Blood Pressure Fittings

Compliant to the ISO 80369-5 Standard

With the publication of the new ISO 80369-5 limb cuff inflation standard for blood pressure cuffs, many organizations will move away from the use of ISO 594 luers and other parts which can misconnect and move towards this new worldwide standard – bayonet-style connectors. The tight dimensional specifications for the compliant connectors will drastically reduce the probability of a misconnection.

Nordson MEDICAL has modified designs for parts to be 100% compliant with the blood pressure male connectors that fit singly or in pairs on blood pressure cuffs. These industry-standard male connectors work well with bayonet-style female connectors, both compliant and non-compliant. The Nordson MEDICAL single-barb designs offer an excellent secure connection with better tensile pull results and hydrostatic burst testing results than traditional multi-barb designs, and the toughness of the DuPont Zytel nylon is well proven.

PharmaLok Clamps

State-of-the-Art Design Allowing for Easy Operation

The biopharmaceutical industry has made a strong move towards single-use technology, so Nordson MEDICAL has developed ground-breaking clamp designs that simplify the assembly process by making it effortless to securely attach sanitary fittings to bag ports and filters.

Nordson MEDICAL’s PharmaLok™ clamps are ASME BPE compliant and operate at a maximum pressure of 80 psi. Single-use and easy-open clamp sizes include .5” to .75“ and 1” to 1.5“, and the tube clamp supports tubing sizes from .5” to 1.25“.

Pharmalok clamps provide a significant advancement for the industry, as a number of existing solutions either require tools for closure or consist of multiple components, which turns what should be a simple operation into a difficult and awkward process.

"As a founding member of BPSA, Nordson MEDICAL has been fortunate enough to have insight into the needs of the biopharm industry,” comments Ken Davis, Global Marketing Manager for Nordson MEDICAL. “User-friendly solutions are increasingly demanded, and single-use systems have developed into an overwhelming market trend. Incorporating these factors into the PharmaLok™ has resulted in an ideal solution for our customers."

Easily operated with one hand, PharmaLok’s Patent pending design allows effortless attachment of fittings to bag ports and filters. The user simply rests the fitting in the PharmaLok’s regulation-sized slot, lightly grips the surrounding handles, and listens for the sound of clicks to confirm a secure connection.
