In vitro blood loop model test results show the BioFlo PICC has 87% less thrombus accumulation on its surface on average compared to commonly used PICCs based on platelet count. In addition, side-by-side in vivo test results demonstrate substantially equivalent thromboresistant characteristics as a heparin coated vascular access catheter.* Available with PASV Valve Technology, it is the first catheter that combines all of these properties with
"BioFlo technology provides
A PICC allows intravenous access for an extended period for chemotherapy, antibiotic delivery and other intravascular therapies. The BioFlo PICC is the only PICC manufactured with Endexo technology, a permanent and non-eluting integral polymer. Endexo is blended into the catheter shaft's polymer, creating a material that provides long-term durability. It is present throughout the catheter shaft material and is not superficial or transient like coatings or impregnated materials. The BioFlo PICC does not contain antibiotics or antimicrobials, agents potentially associated with bacterial resistance.
"We expect to launch BioFlo technology with PASV PICCs in the U.S. within the next 30 days," said
*Pre-clinical in vitro and in vivo evaluations do not necessarily predict clinical performance with respect to thrombus formation.
