Contact Us

The BD Q-Syte™ Needle-Free Connector has a split septum design that complies with the guidelines for reducing catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) rates set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)1 and the International Nosocomial Infection Control Consortium (INICC).


Features and Benefits

Split septum designed to lower CRBSIs

Research shows that split septum needle-free systems have 64% to 70% lower CRBSI rates than complex mechanical valve systems.3,4

Effective flushing due to clear housing

Clear housing allows healthcare professionals to see the effectiveness of their own technique and to promptly correct less effective flushing.

Compact, lightweight design

Straight, open fluid path design provides a high flow rate.
