NRFit® PRODUCTS AVAILABLE NOW
Spectra is here to help you transition to products with NRFit® connectors to reduce the risk of misconnections and improve patient safety. We will be incorporating the NRFit® connectors to our epidural needles, spinal needles and glass LOR syringes product lines. Spectra’s goal is to help our customers be aware about new ISO standards and to facilitate a smooth transition to products with NRFit® connectors.
ISO 80369-6 was developed in 2016 because of several incidents resulting from inappropriate medication being administered neuraxially, resulting in catastrophic consequences. To meet international design standards and prevent future incidences, NRFit® connectors will slowly replace standard small-bore connectors on medical devices used for neuraxial applications.
All healthcare facilities around the world, including the United States, are expected to transition to products with NRFit® connectors. California health facilities have already adopted medical devices with NRFit® connectors as of January 1, 2017.
NONCYTOTOXIC METAL HUBS
As a market leader of the industry, Spectra can certify that all our metal hubs meet cytotoxicity testing requirements. Test results are available upon request.
