Optimized with you, for you

The BD PhaSeal™ System pioneered the category of closed-system drug transfer devices (CSTDs) to help protect the pharmacists and clinicians who prepare and administer hazardous drugs. 20 years later, we turned to healthcare professionals like you for feedback and guidance to optimize its every component. The result is the BD PhaSeal Optima System—a next-generation, user-tested CSTD solution that advances hazardous drug safety.

Design Innovations in every component

Every component of the BD PhaSeal Optima System is designed with no inlets or air exchange for airtight hazardous drug transfers. Click on each hot spot below to see how we have also optimized ease of use, ergonomics and performance.

    Designed to address all your economic concerns

    Ease of use


    The BD PhaSeal Optima System is easy to use, and connects with one step

     

    The BD PhaSeal Optima System replaces the push-turn-push connection mechanism of the BD PhaSeal System with a one-step straight-push mechanism, making it easier for pharmacists and clinicians to use.

    Minimize learning curve

     

    Designed to help minimize the learning curve with:

     
    • Intuitive one-step straight-push connection
    • No alignment or orientation needed to connect
     

    Let our trained clinical specialists help you efficiently integrate the BD PhaSeal Optima System into the workflow of your facility.

    Ergonomics


    Card Image

    Offer your pharmacists and clinicians an ergonomic CSTD solution

     

    We conducted head-to-head comparisons and asked both longstanding CSTD users and traditional technique users how we could improve our design. The feedback and validation we received guided us to optimize every component of the BD PhaSeal Optima System for user comfort.

    Align with NIOSH recommendations1

     

    • Uses a power grip and straight motion to connect and disconnect
    • Aligns with NIOSH recommendations to avoid pinch grip for hand-held tools1
     

    Our trained clinical specialists can also help train your pharmacists and clinicians in best practices for preparation and administration using BD PhaSeal Optima.

    Performance


    The BD PhaSeal Optima System can help you maximize drug extraction for each vial

    In a performance comparison, the BD PhaSeal Optima System demonstrated the lowest residual fluid loss of all four CSTDs tested.2,3 Minimizing residual fluid loss with such a CSTD may translate into a reduction in drug waste that can help optimize preparation of HDs and increase cost savings for your facility. 4,5

    Minimizing this waste could enable hospitals and healthcare professionals to provide sufficient doses of drugs while using fewer vials, which could lead to cost savings.2 It could also help to align patient and facility expenditures on drugs more closely with the actual amount of medicine used.2

    Designed to maximize performance

     
    • Prevents microbial ingress and may maintain drug vial sterility for up to 168 hours and 10 penetrations**^
    • Meets the requirements of the NIOSH IPA draft CSTD-test protocol, a robust test protocol applicable to barrier-type CSTDs**
    • Optimized spike-fluid channel and secure vial attachment
    • Engineered to common International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards
    • Compatible and connects with ISO-compliant syringes, IV sets, luer fittings and standard-size drug vials
     

    We can share the 'Minimizing residual drug loss' and 'Assessment of microbial ingress' whitepapers with you, and help you calculate potential drug savings for your facility.

    Safety


    Card Image

    Designed to reduce the risk of surface and environmental contamination of hazardous drugs

     

    The BD PhaSeal Optima System may help improve healthcare worker safety by reducing the risk of surface contamination to hazardous drugs. The BD PhaSeal Optima System incorporates the double membranes and vapor capture mechanisms pioneered by the BD PhaSeal System, which has been demonstrated to reduce the risk of hazardous drug exposure.

    The BD PhaSeal Optima System meets the NIOSH definition of a CSTD that mechanically prohibits the transfer of environmental contaminants into the system and the escape of drug vapor concentrations outside the system, thereby minimizing individual and environmental exposure to drug vapor, aerosols and spills.

    ^ The ability to prevent microbial ingress for up to 168 hours should not be interpreted as modifying, extending or superseding a manufacturer's labeling recommendations for the storage and expiration dating of the drug vial. Refer to drug manufacturer's recommendations and USP compounding guidelines for shelf life and sterility information.
