Compounded sterile preparations (CSPs) are at their greatest risk when they leave the custody of your pharmacy. The PrepLock Tamper Evident IV Syringe Cap from IMI greatly reduces the risk of your CSP being compromised either accidentally or intentionally. It insures that product integrity is maintained from the time it leaves the sterile hood until it is administered by an authorized clinician.
Installation of the Prep-Lock Tamper Evident IV Syringe Cap in your compounding operation is highly efficient. Each sterile tray of 10 caps offers a unique “keyed” feature allowing the pharmacist the ability to quickly install the cap with a simple twist of the syringe. This helps to maintain aseptic technique and saves time when compounding several syringes at once.
Administering a syringe is very easy for the authorized clinician. Simply pull-off the outer sleeve of the tamper evident cap, unscrew the remaining luer-lock cap and discard. Clinicians appreciate not having to deal with sticky tamper evident tape or frustrating shrink wrap.
A choice of four different colored caps allows the pharmacy the ability to color code either specific drug classes or processes. When you consider the cost of ordinary syringe caps combined with the cost of other tamper evident methods, the PrepLock Tamper Evident Syringe Cap offers extraordinary value. More importantly, it makes a clear statement to accreditation and regulatory agencies about how seriously you take delivering high quality and compliant CSPs.
