Catheter Connections Announces Issuance of a Sixth Patent

Press Release

January 22, 2013

Catheter Connections, a start-up company co-founded by nurses seeking to reduce deadly hospital-acquired bloodstream infections, announced the issuance of U.S. Patent Number 8,343,112. This is the sixth patent issued to the Company in a portfolio that broadly covers its DualCap technology for disinfecting IV connectors ─ technology which helps protect hospital patients from deadly infections.

The Company has the only granted U.S. patents for protecting and disinfecting “male luer” connectors, which are the connectors used to connect IV tubing lines to IV catheters. In its mission to save patient lives, Catheter Connections conceived, developed, manufactures and markets the DualCap System, which includes DualCap ─ the first 510(k) cleared medical device that disinfects male luer connectors, killing the microorganisms known to cause bloodstream infections and protecting the connectors from contamination.
