Prefilled heparinzed saline syringes

The local protocol calls for the use of heparinized saline (1mL [100u] Heparin: 9mL 0.9% NS) for CVAD flushes. Is anyone aware of a manufacturer producing prefilled heparinized saline syringes?

Many thanks,

Manufacturers of prefilled

Manufacturers of prefilled terminally sterile syringes of saline and heparin include BD Medical, Covidien and Excelsior Medical. Excelsior markets through Hospira and B Braun. So there are numerous vendors that can provide these syringes.
