Luer-activated valves enable bidirectional flow when triggered with an ISO-compatible luer. Specifically, they feature a silicone diaphragm that stays closed until opened mechanically with an ISO luer device. Their distinctive needleless design optimizes flow pattern for infusion and aspiration, permitting complete flushing.
With the tremendous impact of needleless systems on the safety of both patients and health professionals, luer-activated valves are regarded as an engineered control to prevent infection from contaminated sharps. As part of a needleless protocol, luer-activated valves for IV access were the initial focus of this valve’s design. However, extensive research into their application potential has expanded use to areas like hemodialysis and hemodynamic monitoring. Other scenarios where they’re found include delivery of parenteral nutrition and as a component of closed medication delivery systems.
Our wide selection of nearly 70 types of luer-activated valves and accessories reflects the expanding range of protocol systems utilizing this technology. With the variety of designs, materials and colors we offer, you’re certain to locate exactly the component you require. Note also that we can often accommodate custom sourcing requests for project-specific sizes and colors. In addition, we offer free samples of certain items in our inventory for trial before purchase.
Among our inventory are numerous different types of luer-activated valves and components with various materials composition, including one-way (ideal for fluid sampling) or bidirectional, BPA- and latex-free, and designs incorporating T- and Y-connectors. We’re pleased to offer swabbable, non-latex needleless injection sites, which allow bidirectional flow for precision- controlled aspiration or injection of fluids. Female luer lock-equipped needleless valves mate tightly with all standard luer syringes and connectors. They offer a high flow rate, with configurations that include Y connectors, barbed ports, tube ports, vial adapters, male luer slips and male luer lock valves.
