The Curos™ Port Protector Simply Changing Infection Control.
Go Ahead, STRIP
Anywhere, Every Time
The Curos® Port Protector is a simple, innovative, disposable disinfection product intended for use on swabbable luer access valves as a disinfecting cleaner prior to line access and to act as a physical barrier to contamination between line accesses. Curos will disinfect the valve three minutes after application and act as a physical barrier to contamination for up to 7 days if not removed.
- The effectiveness of Curos were tested in vitro against Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida glabrata, Candida albicans.1
- Curos Strips are available where and when needed for each IV access, reducing nurse run-around and the potential for cross contamination between rooms
- Vibrant green Curos cap is easy to visually audit and is not confused with other color-indicated therapies
- Proven to encourage high nursing compliance with disinfection protocols
Simply twist a Curos® disinfection cap onto any luer-activated needleless valve. Inside the green cap, a 70% IPA (isopropyl alcohol) saturated sponge provides effective, consistent and reliable passive disinfection of IV access port.
