Qosina announced two new Tuohy borst adapters. One adapter features a female luer lock sideport connector (#80460), while the other has a six-inch DEHP-free PVC sideport tube to a female luer lock connector (#80461).
Both tuohy borst adapters are available to fit zero to nine French guide wires and have a proprietary tri-cut silicone valve technology that provides a leak-proof seal. Both components are made of a polycarbonate body and cap, and it takes fewer than three rotations to seal the valve, providing rapid engagement of the seal and preventing hand fatigue.
The wide cap design is preferred for its ease of use and also has a stop mechanism that prevents it from separating from the body when fully opened. These adapters feature a COPE swivel male luer lock, which minimizes tubing kinks and has a lower profile than a typical valve.
