Bethlehem, Pennsylvania-based B. Braun designed the device to reduce exposure to harmful chemicals. It aims to decrease infection risk in IV access for patients and healthcare providers.
The company says its device is the only needleless connector not made with Bisphenol A (BPA). This harmful chemical can potentially cause multi-organ toxicity. Instead, B. Braun designed CareSite Micro with a drug-resistant material. It helps reduce the risk of infections and drug exposure from stress cracks associated with material and drug incompatibility.
