Contamination/Infection Control


When assembling an IV set, infection causing contaminates can be inadvertently introduced into the fluid path from almost anywhere – your hands, the surface you are working on, and even the air.* Moreover, the more parts there are to assemble, the greater the opportunity for contamination to occur during assembly.

Design Options® IV sets come preassembled in one sterile package. Less assembly minimizes the potential for introduction of contamination.
