November 2, 2015 — Access Scientific LLC announced validation of the Powerwand midline IV catheter for power-injectable capability up to 8ml/sec, 325 psi for up to 10 cycles. The addition of this performance capability makes both 4Fr and 5Fr Powerwands ideal for virtually all computed tomography (CT) contrast studies, to meet the most demanding injection protocols.

The Powerwand now combines high power injectability with a low total complication rate, high flow rates and high rate for completion of therapy. Moreover, in peer-reviewed published studies and scientific posters, the Powerwand has consistently exhibited kink-resistance and blood drawability, making one-stick hospitalizations not only possible but also common.

The catheter combines ChronoFlex C material with Access Scientific’s proprietary kink-resistant process for enhanced performance.
