Intravenous products: AngioDynamics announce the launch of a new Morpheus® SMART PICC bedside insertion kit and new 5 French Dual Lumen Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) as part of the continued growth of its Morpheus SMART PICC line.
“These two launches represent our commitment to providing clinicians with a full portfolio of superior options within our Morpheus SMART PICC product line,” said Shawn McCarthy, Senior Vice President and General Manager for AngioDynamics. “Through this, and other launches, we are continuing to build AngioDynamics’ reputation as the destination for performance and broad choice.”
The high performance Morpheus SMART PICC 5F Dual Lumen Smart PICC power-injectable catheter is designed to provide a superior flow rate of 5 mL/second for purposes of CT imaging. This performance upgrade complements AngioDynamics’ advanced catheter shaft technology, which couples the pushability needed for PICC placement with pliability that minimizes the risk of vessel trauma and phlebitis. It also employs Smart Taper technology, which is designed to reduce the risk of thrombosis by allowing the catheter’s diameter to quickly taper from seven French to a precise five French.
