Features & benefits
Our IV and arterial catheters are designed with the health care professionals working environment in mind. Our focus is to provide products that are user friendly, safe, sharp and with a consistent quality, so you can focus less on worrying about needlestick injuries and more on giving the best care to your patients.

To minimize patient discomfort and boost user confidence our products are available in a vast variety of gauge sizes and lengths. The comprehensive range provides flexibility for health care workers and facilitates demanding physical conditions and different clinical needs.
Small environmental footprint
