Features

  1. AccuTip™ Nitinol Guidewire
    Coiled tip guidewire engineered to navigate tortuous vessel anatomy for atraumatic delivery. Designed to minimize the need for unnecessary needle advancement that may lead to vessel damage and complications.
  2. Echogenic Guidewire Design
    Echogenicity of the guidewire is designed to aid in insertion when using ultrasound devices.
  3. BD Instaflash™ Needle Technology
    Allows for the immediate visual confirmation of vessel entry. Designed to mitigate the potential for intima damage and vessel perforation. This unique feature is made possible through a small notch in the needle cannula.
  4. AccuFlash™ Secondary Flash Chamber
    Secondary blood flash chamber designed to give clinicians an additional indicator of successful cannulation/vascular access.
  5. Power Injectable
    Indicated for power injection with contrast media up to 6 mL/sec, 300psi.
  6. Blood Control Valve 1
    Designed to reduce blood flow into the catheter hub after insertion until a secure luer connection is made.
  7. Improved Flow Actuator 3
    Redesigned to improve flushability of catheter hub.
  8. Needlestick Safety 2
    Built-in needlestick safety spring retracts at the push of a button.
  9. Textured Grip Housing
    Designed for device control during placement.
  10. Colored Guidewire Slider
    Designed for visibility and identification of the gauge size.

1 Blood leakage from the hub may occur unless a complete luer connection is made within 10 seconds.

2 If needle retraction does not occur, depress white button again. If the needle does not retract on the second attempt, carefully withdraw the needle and guidewire and contact Bard Access Systems.
