Qosina (Ronkonkoma, N.Y.) recently added two products to its line: ENFit components for enteral connections and H.B. Fuller adhesives for bonding medical device assemblies.
The ENFit connector was designed using a non-traditional orientation and larger dimensions that do not allow connectivity with the common conical luer (formerly ISO 594, now ISO 80369-7). It has been tested using a strict validation process that includes human factors research, usability analysis, performance testing, misconnections assessment and computer-aided design techniques. ENFit components comply with the ISO 80369-3 standard, which was developed to improve patient safety and reduce the risk of small-bore misconnections used in liquid healthcare applications, according to Qosina.
The company also recently announced that it has teamed up with medical adhesives manufacturer H.B. Fuller to offer a variety of reliable and durable solutions for bonding assemblies together. H.B. Fuller’s line offers instant and light-cured adhesives in low, medium or high viscosities.
