May 2017 - VaccinePorter® Carrier Systems

VaccinePorter® Carrier Systems

Keeping your medicines effective

Temperature controlled products are products which are actively or passively controlled at a level different from the surrounding environment. This is one of the most vital parts of transporting temperature sensitive products. Vaccines are transported in refrigerated containers to surgeries and local vaccine storage facilities where they are then stored in special vaccine fridges. Keeping the vaccines within the +2°C and +8°C temperature range throughout this process is 'maintaining the cold chain'. Having products too cold causes deterioration or too warm can render the vaccine inert. Vaccines need to be stored and managed correctly so that immunisations are carried out safely and efficiently reducing the risk of compromising the quality, efficacy and safety of the vaccine program.

Having a reliable system ensures that your products are not compromised when in transit. The VaccinePorter® range allows for a safe controlled transit of temperature sensitive products between +2°C and +8°C for up to 8 hours even with multiple openings. Validation documentation assures you that the controlled product will be safe in transit. Porters are available in various sizes allowing flexibility in vaccine transportation.

Each Porter comes with a lightweight fully replaceable polystyrene inner surrounded by a strong bag with secure Velcro fastening and a tamper evident facility. In order to maintain the validation for each Porter, regular visual and weight checks are to be carried out to the cool pack ensuring the weight and product is not compromised. The polystyrene inner will also need to be checked for and chips or damage. These signs could affect the validations and will need to be replaced before use.

To learn more or to request a product demonstration please call 0800 0328 428 or email sales@helapet.co.uk.

Mar 2017 - Helapet unveil new products for 2017

Helapet unveil new products for 2017

Female Luer Lock Connectors / Tamper-evident IV Syringe Cap

As part of our growing portfolio of sterile syringe caps and transfer devices, Helapet Ltd have today unveiled new sterile consumable products for 2017.

Female Luer Lock Connectors for luer lock syringes facilitate safe, contaminant-free transfer of fluids from a master syringe into smaller doses. Manufactured using latex-free and non-pyrogenic materials, our double ended Luer Lock Connectors can be securely applied to male luer lock syringes preventing the risk of leaking and possible contamination.

Technicians now have more control in the sterile preparation of syringes, with a choice of Luer Lock Connectors to suit individual application. The Female Luer Lock Connector has an ergonomic, rounded design with a spacious pathway to facilitate rapid and efficient transfer of fluids between syringes. Our unique Luer Lock Micro Channel Connector includes a narrow bore pathway for precise transfer of smaller doses, leaving minimal residual waste between syringes. Delivering valuable accuracy the Luer Lock Micro Channel Connector is perfect for paediatric medicines, small syringe sizes and high value medications.

Both Luer Lock Connectors are supplied individually blister packed making them deal for disinfection and non-touch application to the syringe.

Tamper-evident IV Syringe Caps for luer lock syringes are a practical, cost-effective solution for the protection of syringes once they have left the sterile preparation area. An easy-to-use alternative to sticky tamper-evident tape or shrink wrap, Tamper Evident IV Syringe Caps maintain the product integrity of the syringe and allows clinical professionals to visually identify any evidence of tampering before administration.

Manufactured from latex-free materials, each cap can be applied to a luer lock syringe using the specially designed sterile tray packaging. Each sterile tray contains ten caps that are individually secured with a simple twist of the syringe, negating the risk touch contamination and enhancing aseptic technique. Simple and easy-to-use, Helapet's new Tamper Evident IV Syringe Caps offer excellent value in maintaining drug safety.

New SteriSpor™ Sterile Sporicidal Spray

Helapet are delighted to introduce our all new sterile sporicidal trigger spray, christened SteriSpor™ for use in controlled cleanroom environments.

A fast acting yet non-hazardous hypochlorous acid (HOCl) solution, SteriSpor™ has been developed to minimise the risk of viable spore contamination during aseptic transfer of cleanroom materials.

Classified as non-hazardous and emitting very low odour compared to other sporicidal products, SteriSpor™ sprays provide assured safe handling for cleanroom operators.

Each spray is aseptically filled into an ergonomically designed bottle using a closed system format to maintain 3 month in-use sterility, preventing the ingress of contaminated air. SteriSpor™ sprays are fully cleanroom processed and double bagged for smooth and efficient transfer into cleanroom environments.

With no activation required SteriSpor™ sprays deliver exceptional performance straight from the dispenser.
