I was looking for an update on some of the discussions that were on here a while ago of the relative merits of the SwabCap versus the Curos Port Protector or other luer acces valve caps with 70%IPA. There had been some discussion questioning the value of these devices and saying that swabbing was going to be appropriate even with these devices. There was reference to upcoming clinical trials. I'm wondering if anyone has any more information?
Do you use the caps and if so what has your experiene been? Do you trust them? Are you swabbing anyway? How expensive are they? Do they work well within your facility? Is their use at your facility increasing, degreasing or staying the same?
I have no connection with either firm or their products.
