Description of the device
Spike for bags of intravenous solutions
Code 7218.01: spike with Qimo Female, for aspirating or adding fluids to bags of intravenous solutions. It can also be used with paediatric bags. The spike perforates the infusion bag while Qimo female maintains at all times a closed system allowing to aspirate or add fluids in an aseptic manner.
Code 7218.11: spike with Qimo Female and non-return valve. This spike is designed for aspiration only of fluid from I.V. bags, but no fluid can be added into the bag. It thus avoids the contamination of the I.V. fluid by drugs.
Qimo Female is a multi-purpose, closed, needle-free, small size I.V. connection device. See the corresponding technical file code 7210.02.
