BD PosiFlush™ SureScrub™ Pre-Filled Syringe is a copackaged saline flush syringe that enables clinicans to follow best practices and guidelines for disinfection of needleless connectors. Specifically, it helps satisfy the CDC recommendation to "scrub the hub" and the INS recommendation to use friction to disinfect ports.
PosiFlush SureScrub Pre-Filled Syringe includes the first alcohol pad cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to disinfect needleless connectors. In an evaluation studying the effectiveness of the PosiFlush SureScrub alcohol pad in disinfecting six needleless connectors, the alcohol pad was shown to reduce the microbial load by more than 99.99% (4-log) with 95% confidence on all six connectors—with a five-second scrub followed by a five-second dry time.*
