BD PhaSeal™ System: Evidence-Based Performance
BD PhaSeal has more clinical studies published than any other closed-system drug transfer device. Its airtight, leakproof performance is proven by more than 20 independent, peer-reviewed, published studies. Several of these independent studies conducted by thought leaders at leading medical facilities and universities across the globe demonstrate that BD PhaSeal meets the NIOSH and ISOPP definition of a closed system transfer device (CSTD):
“a drug transfer device that mechanically prohibits the transfer of environmental contaminants into the system and the escape of hazardous drug or vapor concentrations outside the system.”
The BD PhaSeal System’s unique features, such as dry, leakproof connections and an airtight expansion chamber, have been validated by these numerous studies. A recently conducted study has also shown its ability to provide a barrier to the entry of contaminants into sterile solutions.*
Guidelines on the safe handling of hazardous drugs have been written to protect healthcare workers and the environment. Visit the Guidelines page to view guidelines that address alerts such as this one:
