Closed System Transfer Devices - anyone using? Whaddya think?

Hello all,

We've been asked to evaluate and recommend CSTDs to a potential user. We have the major manufacturer's info, but now need real-life feedback from the people who use them.  If you're using Genie from ICU, Phaseal from Carmel, Texium from Alaris or Onguard from B. Braun, please drop a line or two about what you like and don't like about them. What needs to be changed to make these things really helpful and not either slow you down or create problems of their own?

If you happen to know what your contract pricing for them is, that'd be great too, so we can factor it in.

Thanks for your feedback. It'll help us make a better recommendation.

Hi Lynn, Sorry about that.

Hi Lynn,

Sorry about that. CSTDs are closed sytem transfer devices.  They're designed to reduce or eliminate exposure to the pharmacist or nurse during admixture of cytotoxic drugs. Major ones out there are Onguard, Genie, SmartSite and Phaseal.

Thanks,

Neil

I realized that after I looked at your message title again. I am familiar with Phaseal, but not the others. No clinical use though.
