A sobering statistic that doesn’t have to be…
Every year in the U.S. nearly 500,000 people acquire catheter-related blood stream infections. Up to 25% die, even though most of these infections are preventable.
The DualCap System™
The DualCap System™ is a revolutionary infection control technology that does something no other product can — safely disinfect and protect both the IV tubing and IV catheter access valve, ensuring that the IV tubing can be safely reconnected to the IV catheter. For the first time, clinicians have a quick and easy way to keep IV luers disinfected right from the start and keep them disinfected each and every time the line is accessed.
EVERY VALVE, EVERY LINE, EVERY TIME.™
KEEP IT CAPPED.™

At Catheter Connections®, we develop innovative vascular access products that can help protect patients from life-threatening infections during infusion therapy.
Our flagship product, DualCap®, a sterile, single-use device containing two disinfecting caps – one for the IV catheter needleless luer access valve (also known as the needleless injection site, port or valve) and one for the male luer connector at the end of the IV tubing – is the only FDA-cleared device for disinfection and protection of both the IV catheter needleless luer access valve and the male luer connector at the end of the IV tubing. DualCap helps to prevent intraluminal contamination, the most common way IV connectors contribute to infections in long-term catheter use.
