The NanoClave™ Needlefree connector is your perfect choice for neonatal and pediatric patient infusion connections. The NanoClave™ minimal flush volume will help you maximize your patient’s safety.
The NanoClave™ is specifically designed for your delicate neonatal and pediatric patients. You make every effort to keep them safe from infection while effectively managing their fluids, NanoClave™ can help with minimal flush volumes, a straight and clear fluid path, and a proven design that is mechanically and microbiologically closed.
The design of your needlefree intravenous (I.V.) connectors plays a substantial role in your ability to limit hospital-acquired bloodstream infections (HA-BSI). The neutral displacement straight fluid path design, split-septum and minimal dead space of the NanoClave work together to help minimize blood reflux into the tip of the catheter upon connection or disconnection of the luer. Not only does the NanoClave™ provide enhanced patient safety through innovative technology but it has also been proven to provide an effective microbial barrier against bacteria transfer and contamination.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can needles be used with NanoClave™?
NanoClave™ is totally incompatible with the use of needles and caps. It’s a better system since it succeeds in reducing the risk of accidental inoculation by preventing the use of needles. The NanoClave™ can only be activated with a male luer, NEVER with a needle.
What happens if I use a needle with NanoClave™?
The needle will pierce the silicone seal and a leak will occur.
What if this situation occurs?
The only solution is to change the NanoClave™.
Can we use the NanoClave™ with all Luer connectors?
Yes, provided that the connectors are ISO luer Lock or ISO luer Slip (99% of the connectors on the market are of this type). It connects to all female luer connectors (lines, catheters, valves, extensions, etc.).
When should I change the NanoClave™?
The NanoClave™ should be changed according to each institution's protocols. In bacteriological studies, the NanoClave™ has been shown to stay sealed for up to 7 days in arterial as well as venous lines. The NanoClave™ has shown to maintain its seal for 144 activations in 144 hours.
Can I use a cap with the NanoClave™?
The NanoClave™ does not require caps. In addition, a cap can rupture the polycarbonate spike. The silicone seal withstands more than 3000 mmHg of pressure and acts as a bacterial barrier (after being disinfected). The NanoClave™ is impermeable to air and water and a cap can keep it open.
What can I use to clean the NanoClave™?
The NanoClave™ has been proven to be totally compatible with povidone-iodine, isopropyl alcohol, Betadine, and chlorhexidine.
Do we need to flush the NanoClave™ after an extraction or an infusion?
Always follow the hospital's protocol. It is highly recommended that the NanoClave™ be flushed after an infusion or an extraction.
Is the NanoClave™ effectively flushed after a blood infusion?
Flushing with saline solution after the extraction or infusion of blood is highly effective in the NanoClave™.
