Catheter Connections’ DualCap Product Fails to Disinfect in Independent Study
Ivera Medical announced that it has sued Catheter Connections for false advertising and unfair competition based on false claims that its dark blue IV-Pole Strips and DualCap products for male luer connectors disinfect all critical surfaces of male luer connectors when used as directed. Testing conducted by an independent laboratory indicates that Catheter Connections’ dark blue disinfecting caps for male luer connectors fail to consistently meet minimum standards for disinfecting devices, and are inferior to Curos Tips in disinfection performance.
