Teleflex, a provider of medical devices for critical care and surgery, has entered into an agreement with Premier Purchasing Partners, the group purchasing unit of the Premier healthcare alliance
Under the agreement Teleflex will provide its Arrow Central Venous Catheters (CVC), Arrow Peripheral Inserted Central Catheters (PICC) and the VasoNova Vascular Positioning System (VPS).
The PICC product line includes the Arrow Evolution PICC with Chlorag+ard antimicrobial technology which provides protection against bacterial and fungal colonization.
Chlorag+ard antimicrobial technology is a Chlorhexidine-treated peripherally inserted central catheter with both intraluminal and extraluminal protection.
VPS is an intra-vascular catheter navigation technology that does not require external metal detectors, viewing screens and subjective interpretation of ECG signals.
The Arrow vascular access products are now available in ErgoPack Maximal Barrier Precautions Trays, a system designed to support compliance with best practice and guidelines for catheter insertion.
The system includes central venous access catheters, peripherally inserted central catheters, multi access catheters and acute hemodialysis catheters.
The agreement is effective from October this year until June 2014.
