October 22, 2013 — Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced the availability of syringe packs with spikes, to be used when loading contrast and saline for delivery with power injectors in computed tomography (CT) suites. Bracco syringe packs are specifically designed for use with the EmpowerCTA and Empower CT contrast delivery systems, offering greater flexibility in contrast and saline preparation. 
 
“These new syringe packs reduce opportunities for contamination, help reduce contrast mess and allow efficient contrast loading,” said Terry Heagy, senior device business manager, Bracco Diagnostics.  
 
Heagy also noted that the new spikes work with all volumes of contrast and saline to promote workflow efficiencies and ease of use. In addition, Bracco syringe packs with spikes conform to the Joint Commission’s “Elements of Performance for Medication Management,” as it pertains to standards for hospitals safely preparing medications.
