Qosina was established in 1980 to serve medical device companies by providing stock components. Companies purchase from Qosina to eliminate the cost of tooling their own components and to receive immediate delivery from inventory. This particular approach is useful to companies of all sizes, but has proven especially effective for small to mid-range manufacturing companies, as evidenced by Qosina’s broad customer base cultivated over the years.
Featured technologies: Closed male luer lock valve connectors, Tyvek sterilization supplies, TPE-coated-stem check valves
- Closed male luer lock valve connectors: Qosina’s closed male luer lock valve connectors directly connect to female luer locks or lure-activated valves and disconnected by twisting counterclockwise. The valves are designed to be DEHP-free and completely close when disconnected, which eliminates the need to clamp or cap. The lock valve connectors are best used for flushing and drainage applications, preventing dripping and leakage, restricting the free flow of fluids and are suitable for gamma and EtO sterilization.
- Tyvek sterilization supplies: Qosina’s Tyvek sterilization supplies are designed for biopharmaceutical equipment and medical device components. There are 54 options to choose from and it has a large assortment of pouches, sheets and tubes while being available in many sizes and styles. The sterilization supply line offers optimum contact clarity for visibility and is offered with and without sterilization indicators and is compatible with autoclave, steam and EtO sterilization methods.
- TPE-coated-stem check valves: TPE-coated-stem check valves offered by Qosina feature a unique male luer lock outlet with a thermoplastic elastomer-coated stem that acts as an elastic sealing element. The stem avoids the adherence of mating surfaces and improves sealing to allow for an easy disconnection of luers. The low mating force reduces the risk of stress cracks and the female luer connection. Qosina’s check valves are manufactured in an ISO Class 8 Clean Room. They are also BPA- and latex-free, REACH and RoHS compliant and suitable for EtO and gamma sterilization.
