LifeShield™ Antimicrobial Clave™


When it comes to limiting bacteria contamination, design matters. Our LifeShield™ Antimicrobial Clave™ needle-free connector integrates an antimicrobial ionic silver additive to improve the barrier against microbial ingress. During the production process, ionic silver is impregnated into both the split-septum silicone seal and internal blunt cannula of the Antimicrobial Clave, which provides an even and continuous distribution of silver ions throughout the 96-hour use life.1 The LifeShield Antimicrobial Clave connector is approved for use on all peripheral, arterial and central venous catheters. Innovative Features Reduce Infection Risk Passive technology cannot accept a needle, ensuring compliance with needle-free policies No additional components or adapters are required to access the device Split-septum is noted in the CDC guidelines as a preferred design feature for connectors2 Straight fluid path allows for clearing of blood and blood residual with low flush volumes1 Minimal dead space (also referred to as residual volume) of 0.06 mL allows for lower flush volumes Flat, smooth swabbable surface makes disinfection easy Supports a saline flush option, which helps decrease the risk of Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) Clamping sequence not required, reducing educational burden and risk of error Cleared for use with power injectors1
