The DualCap System™ is a uniquely designed disinfecting cap system for use on both the male luer connector at the end of the IV tubing and the needle-free valve. The Light Blue and Dark Blue DualCap® contain 70% isopropyl alcohol to disinfect and protect IV connectors between uses.
Maintaining your catheter at home with the DualCap System™
With a doctor’s order, patients may purchase both the Light Blue and Dark Blue DualCap® to help maintain their catheter and/or IV infusion line in a home care setting. The Light Blue DualCap® helps keep needle-free valves disinfected and protected between infusions or line flushes. The Dark Blue DualCap® helps keep male luer connectors disinfected and protected between insertion into the valve for fluid or antibiotic administrations. When left in place for 30 seconds, DualCap® disinfects needle-free valves and male luer connectors and provides a physical barrier to contamination for up to 7 days under normal conditions if not removed.
DualCap® may be used on needle-free valves and male luer connectors and should never be placed on an open catheter hub.
DualCap® is single-use only and must be discarded after use.
Designed by infusion nurses, the DualCap System™ safely disinfects both IV tubing end connectors and needle-free valves, providing healthcare facilities with a cost-effective, integrated solution for IV disinfection and protection, and helping in the fight against IV catheter-related blood stream infections.
