Home Care: Choice of administration set for home mixed drug-i.e. ADD-Vantage, Minibag Plus systems

I work for a home infusion pharmacy.  We provide these systems when a drug with short stability (usually less than 7 days) is dispensed.  I would like to hear from  those of you in similiar practice in regard to what type of administration set you are using-filtered or nonfiltered, and the rationale for your choice.    The drugs we are dispensing with these systems are Unasyn, ampicillin, merropenem, imipenen &  Invanz.  Also, if you are dispensing tygecycline, how are you handling the home mix.  Thank you.

We do a lot of gravity infusions.  We do use Advantage and MiniBag Plus when the stability is a problem and that method is an option.  Sometimes we just need to redeliver 2 - 3 times a week (unfortunately)

I think I should clarify my question:  what type type of administration set-filter or no filter, are you using with these systems?

Mini-Bag Plus works
Mini-Bag Plus works easily.   I gouged my own hand once using the Vial Mate Adaptors.
