Baxa Corp. Launches PadLock Set Saver for IV Safety

The Baxa Corp. recently launched its PadLock Set Saver, an aseptic IV administration set storage solution that can be swabbed and reused.

PadLock provides a secure seal for the end of the administration set, preventing contamination when the set is not being used for infusion. The company says the Set Saver attaches to an IV administration set and replaces the need for sterile, single-use caps.

The device is designed to promote best practice for aseptic IV administration set disconnections, preventing touch contamination and securing the IV line in between drug administrations.
