1 Cyto-Set Safer cytostatic preparation and application IV Administration

2 Always a closed system Protect yourself and your environment The number of cytostatic infusions that have to be prepared is growing while the time available for setup and administration keeps getting shorter. But even small amounts of these potent drugs can pose health hazards. That s why the handling of cytostatic agents requires your undivided attention. Only a system that doesn t allow risks and hazards to happen in the first place can protect you effectively! The integrated safety components in Cyto-Set form a closed system right from the first handling step to the very last, from preparation to disposal. Protect yourself and your environment. Use Cyto-Set and experience that safe handling feeling.

3 while preparing Safe drug preparation in the pharmacy with Cyto-Set Mix Start by filling Cyto-Set Mix with carrier solution and then priming it through Prime Stop before you inject the cytostatic drug. This method effectively eliminates the risk of cytostatic contamination at the connection site. The Safsite connectors prevent leaks and needlesticks. The only thing allowed is the needle-free injection of the cytostatic drug into the line. Just one more added safety feature to protect pharmacy staff. Cyto-Set Safety System Cyto-Set Mix for centralized admixing and Cyto-Set Infusion/ Infusomat Space for stationary preparation and application always form a closed system. All connections remain free of cytostatic agents and can only be wetted with the carrier or flushing solution. Cyto-Set Line connects primed solutions. Cyto-Set Mix Cyto-Set Line Safe Preparation

4 IV Administration... and safe drug application! Cyto-Set Infusomat Space Cyto-Set Infusion/Infusomat Space Safe drug application on the ward On the ward, prepare the Cyto-Set Infusion/Infusomat Space separately from the cytostatic. Fill the system completely with flushing solution (e.g. Sodium Chloride) and vent through Prime Stop. During priming, the Cyto-Set Infusion/Infusomat Space is only filled with flushing solution, ensuring safe priming. The Cyto-Set Mix prepared in the pharmacy is now connected to Safsite valves: A tactile click lets you know that the sets are securely connected. This method allows you to connect up to four Cyto-Set Mix infusions to the system, ensuring always safe drug application. Flush the IV Set with flushing solution to prevent interactions between different cytostatics. Avoid contamination with cytostatic agents by flushing the tubing after the final infusion. The entire IV Set is disposed of as a closed system, ensuring safe disposal. Safe Application

5 for safer cytostatic handling! User benefits Closed system from preparation and application to disposal All connection sites are free of cytotoxic drugs Easy, drip-free priming Needle-free system Less risk of cytostatic contamination Light protection for photosensitive drugs PVC/DEHP-free Neutrapur tubing. Particularly patientfriendly. No plasticizer leachable. Ecologogical disposal. Back check valve prevents backflow and offers higher safety during parallel pressure and gravity infusions. Safsite valve offers convenient and safe needlefree access for injection, aspiration or parallel infusions as a closed system. Vented spike with back check valve prevents fluid from dripping out. Prime stop ensures safe and dry priming. Maintains closed system until connected to patient. Tubing and drip chamber with transparent light protection to recognize residual air in the tubing and drips in the drip chamber with normal eyesight. Rotating Luer-Lock connector permits safer and more convenient connection without twisting the tube. Advanced precise roller clamp offers a good to control flow rate. Comfortable to hold. Spike dock for secure spike discard.
