BD Insyte Autoguard BC shielded IV catheter with blood control technology

Protect from blood leakage

The BD Insyte Autoguard BC shielded IV catheter with blood control technology is clinically demonstrated to reduce the risk of blood exposure by 95%.1* BD blood control technology minimizes blood exposure,* cleanup time and use of supplies associated with blood spills.2

Blood leakage prevention septum

You do not need to worry about stopping blood during initial insertion with the BD Insyte Autoguard BC catheter.1

Increased safety

BD Insyte Autoguard IV catheters demonstrated a statistically significant 95% reduction in needlesticks.2†

First-stick success

BD Instaflash needle technology on the 20-G, 22-G and 24-G sizes incorporates a notched needle to improve first-stick success and reduce painful hit-and-miss insertions.

Minimized phlebitis

BD Vialon biomaterial softens up to 70% in the vein, enabling longer dwell times3‡ and reducing the chance of mechanical phlebitis by up to 50%.3‡
