Since 1994 CLAVE has been the preferred connector worldwide. More than 2,000 facilities around the globe use CLAVE to help them meet their infection control needs. CLAVE is the only Needlefree Connector technology which has been proven to reduce intraluminal catheter colonization in a randomized trial (Bouza, 2003).
The reversed, split-septum technology and dedicated internal fluid path are the heart of what makes the CLAVE least likely to transmit bacteria than any other needlefree connector (Ryder, 2007).
Please see the product brochure for a more complete description of the CLAVE connector.
