PICC Lines

SMART DESIGN. BETTER OUTCOMES.

AngioDynamics’ range of CT-rated PICC lines has been designed to withstand high pressure injections, simplify care and maintenance and minimize the
risk of catheter related complications.

Morpheus SMART PICC: Featuring SMART Taper Technology, this product line offers True French size catheters with the shortest taper in the industry, reducing the catheter-to-vein diameter ratio at the puncture site, while providing additional kink resistance and venotomy plug. Morpheus SMART PICCs also offer the best-in-class CT-rated flow rates, up to 6ml/s.

Xcela PICC PASV with PASV Valve Technology: CT-rated PICC with a reverse taper and available with Pressure Activated Safety Valve (PASV) technology, a proximal valve designed to reduce blood reflux into the catheter lumen that could lead to catheter-related complications and has over 10 years of clinical experience. The PASV Valve may be offers a saline only option for maintenance.*

BioFlo PICC with PASV Valve Technology: the first CT-rated PICC of its kind, combining a reverse taper, the PASV proximal valve, and a catheter shaft that incorporates  Endexo Technology. Endexo Technology is a permanent and non-eluting integral polymer designed to reduce thrombus accumulation on the catheter surfaces.

Clinicians are instructed to follow institutional protocols concerning PICC maintenance. Heparin may be used based on the physician’s clinical assessment of patient needs or per institutional protocols

 

BioFlo PICC with PASV Technology
Combining Endexo and PASV Valve Technology with Power-injection Capabilities

The BioFlo PICC with PASV Valve Technology is the first PICC of its kind with the Endexo Technology, providing a catheter more resistant to the accumulation of blood components (platelets and thrombus).

In-vitro blood loop model test results show that on average, the BioFlo PASV PICC has 87% less thrombus accumulation on its surface compared to commonly used PICCs based on platelet count.

The BioFlo PASV PICC features the PASV Valve Technology, making it the first catheter that combines the reduced thrombus accumulation benefit with our patented valve designed to reduce blood reflux into the catheter lumen that could lead to catheter related complications. 

 

Based on benchtop test results which may not be indicative of clinical results. Data on file. The reduction in thrombus accumulation was evaluated using in-vitro and in-vivo models. Pre-clinical in-vitro and in-vivo evaluations do not necessarily predict clinical performance with respect to thrombus formation.

 

Endexo Technology
Designed to Reduce the Risk of Thrombosis Accumulation on the Catheter Surface

Endexo technology is a proprietary polymer, directly added to the base polyurethane during the manufacturing process.

 

Endexo polymer is present throughout the catheter shaft, including the outer surface, inner surface and even the cut catheter tip. It is not a coating or impregnated into the catheter. BioFloremains present for the life of the catheter, providing long-term durability.††
 

BioFlo does not contain agents that may be associated with bacterial resistance or allergy, such as antibiotics, antimicrobials or antiseptic. In addition, this catheter does not contain heparin, which may help minimize the complications associated with heparin use.

PASV Valve Technology
Designed to Reduce the Risk of Occlusion

The propietary Pressure Activated Safety Valve (PASV) valve is a direction-specific valve located in the proximal hub of the catheter, outside of the patient and the bloodstream. It is designed to reduce blood reflux into the catheter lumen that could lead to catheter-related complications and has over 10 years of clinical experience.

 

 

The PASV Valve product does not have clamps or require a specific needleless connector. It allows the PICC line to be trimmed distally before the catheter insertion. The PASV Valve offers a saline only option for maintenance.

 

Clinicians are instructed to follow institutional protocols concerning PICC maintenance. Heparin may be used based on the physician’s clinical assessment of patient needs or per institutional protocols

 

Smart Taper Technology
Smart Taper Technology provides clinicians a comprehensive line of CT compatible PICC kits that offer True French size catheters and the shortest taper in the industry.
