Cyto-Set® is a single-use, sterile infusion system for administration of different cytotoxic drugs via one single closed line-system by gravity or pressure. The Cyto-Set® system reduces the risk of contamination of person and environment when preparing and applying cytotoxic drugs provided by its technical components forming a closed system and the resulting workflow.
The variety of Cyto-Set® products is widespread and offers a convenient solution for the application and preparation of cytostatic drugs in several situations. When used together, Cyto-Set® Mix and Cyto-Set® provide a closed system from preparation in the pharmacy to the application on the ward, all the way to the disposal after treatment.
- Needle-free valve: Helps to reduce the risk of chemical contamination as the valves are designed for preventing spillage / drug exposure.1
- Finger stopper and finger grip: Reduction of microbial contamination due to the finger stopper and finger grip.2
- PrimeStop: Improved safety against microbial contamination due to the hydrophobic, bacteria retentive PrimeStop cap on the patient connector which provides a closed system until connection to the patient.3,4
- Needle-free valve: Provides easy access, while helping to reduce the chance of accidental touch contamination.5
- Air vent filter in the spike: The bacteria tight air vent filter in the spike reduces the contamination risk of the infusion solution.6
- Grip plate with integrated back check valves: Integrated back check valves enable an improved safety standard and less risk of unmeant mixture of drugs due to the prevention of reflux.7
- 15 µm filter in the drip chamber: A particle filter in the drip chamber with a pore size of 15 µm prevents the infusion of particles from the infusion container.8
- 2 µm Sterifix® filter: The 0.2 µm Sterifix® filter retains bacteria, fungi, particles and air.
- Needle-free valve: Provides needle-free access, while eliminating the risk of needlestick injuries.9, 10
- Structure of the regime: Due to the 90° angle of the valves in the grip plate, the whole Cyto-Set® regime is structured well, which reduces the risk of mistaking the drugs within the therapy.
- AirStop: AirStop function in the drip chamber reduces the risk of air embolism.11
- PVC / DEHP free tubing: All lines are PVC-free, there is no risk of DEHP exposure.
- Tightness of valves: Test on stress cracking corrosion with drug solution
- Evaluation of microbial barrier performance of Cyto-Set® and Cyto-Set® Mix
- Investigation of the adsorption and desorption behavior of Cyto-Set® AirStop
- Tightness of tubing connection with clamp (Cyto-Set® Mix)
