Feel and See the Standard of Care®

The PowerPort® duo M.R.I.® device provides the benefits of power injection (when used with the PowerLoc® Safety Infusion Set Family device) with the ability to see through the port with minimal artifact. The PowerPort® duo M.R.I.® device is radio-translucent, aides in identification of a flipped port, and allows patients to receive IV therapies and CECT scans without the need for repeated needlesticks.

It combines reliable venous access with the unique ability for power-injected Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography (CECT) scans. Power-injected CECT scans produce superior images to help better manage patient care. Such scans are often used to track tumor markers or perform pulmonary embolism studies.

Benefits of the PowerPort® DUO M.R.I.® Device

PowerPort® duo M.R.I.® Dual Lumen Implantable Port is ideal for delivery of supportive therapies in conjunction with intravenous chemotherapy. Intermediate in size, the PowerPort® duo M.R.I.® device requires only a small pocket to facilitate easy placement while ensuring greater patient comfort.

PowerPort Duo with PowerLoc Max

PowerLoc® Safety Infusion Set

The PowerLoc® Max safety infusion set is the ideal device for accessing PowerPort® devices. This combination of power injectable devices enables contrast agents to be power-injected. As a result, tissues show up more clearly in CECT scans, making it easier to monitor patient condition.

A variety of PowerLoc® Max safety infusion set options are available as accessory kits for continued PowerPort® device access needs.

Power Injectable

19 gauge and 20 gauge needles withstand up to 5 mL/s maximum infusion rate

22 gauge needle withstand up to 2 mL/s maximum infusion rate

Power Loc

Easy to Use:

Smooth and simple, single-step safety activation

Clear plastic base provides excellent site visibility

Dual port adaptability

Comfortable for the patient:

Smallest footprint of all Bard® Safety Infusion Sets

Non-absorbent patient comfort pad

Better dressing profile

Lower insertion and penetration force than other non-siliconized port access needles

This product does not contain DEHP

This product does not contain natural rubber latex

ChronoFlex* Polyurethane Catheters

ChronoFlex* Catheter highlights

ChronoFlex* polyurethane catheters have been proven to exhibit superior biodurability compared with other polyurethane catheters, making them ideal for long-term, blood-contacting devices. In vivo studies indicate the ChronoFlex* polyurethane catheter has less propensity for surface biodegradation, making it more resistant to environmental stress cracking.

  • Given the inherent material strength of ChronoFlex* polyurethane, it is superior to Tecoflex* urethane for use with Taxol* or Taxotere* drugs.
  • Firmness and rounded tip facilitate advancement into vein.
  • Thin catheter walls offer increased flow-rate capabilities.
  • ChronoFlex* polyurethane catheters are exclusive to Bard Access Systems’ implanted ports.

Groshong* Catheters

Groshong* Catheter highlights

The three-way Groshong* valve allows infusion and blood aspiration while reducing the risk of air embolism, blood reflux and clotting. Flushing frequency is decreased because the valve prevents blood from backing into the catheter and clotting. Because the system is closed, routine maintenance is simplified and the need for heparin is eliminated.

  • Negative pressure opens valve inward, permitting blood aspiration.
  • Positive pressure opens valve outward, allowing infusion.
  • At neutral pressure, valve remains closed, reducing risk of air embolism, blood reflux and clotting.

Open-Ended Silicone Catheters

Silicone Catheter highlights

Bard Access Systems’ open-ended central venous catheters continue to set the standard for performance and reliability.

  • Soft, atraumatic tip offers added safety during implantation.
  • Medical-grade radiopaque silicone construction ensures biocompatibility.
  • Available in attachable and pre-attached configurations.
