BioFlo PICC by AngioDynamics

BioFlo PICC by AngioDynamics

Why BioFlo?

The BioFlo PICC is the only PICC of its type with Endexo Technology (a permanent and non-eluting integral polymer), providing a catheter material more resistant to the accumulation of blood components such as platelets and thrombus. Endexo remains present throughout the life of the catheter.

Located in the catheter hub, PASV is designed to automatically resist backflow, reducing blood reflux that could lead to catheter-related complications. The valve will automatically close after infusion and open for sampling of blood, however it will remain closed during normal increases in central venous pressure again reducing occlusion in the catheter.

The Navilyst PICC is power injectable with advanced features such as large lumen diameters allow the Xcela PICC with PASV Valve Technology to deliver the power injection flow rates required for contrast-enhanced CTs compatible with up to 325 psi CT injections.

Clampless, alcohol resistant extension tubes are designed to reduce the risk of damage and promote patient comfort and reduce infection.

Printed priming volume and lumen size simplify care and maintenance.

A new advanced carbothane material offers alcohol resistance for durability and convenient care provides a balance of flexibility and strength to ease advancement and promotes kink resistance to maintain flow. Minimum weekly saline flush is recommended. This use of saline may limit the complications and cost associated with heparin use.

The Carbothane allows for large internal diameters, which are designed to provide greater flow rates at lower pressures, reduces the risk of catheter occlusion and designed for easier blood withdrawal.

Patented reverse tapered extrusion is designed to increase kink resistance and strengthen the catheter into the hub and the tampenade effect seals entry tract.

The PICCs are cutting edge with ease of placement. They have the shorter 70cm wire for the MST delivery. There is the exact-length measurement system. They have trimmable catheter tip and enhanced radiopacity. They are highly compatible with ECG tip location technology such as the Nautilus Delta.

Benefits of the BioFlo PICC

The BioFlo PICC with Endexo Technology and PASV Valve Technology

  • PASV® Valve Technology designed to automatically resist back flow and reduce blood reflux on the inside of the catheter that can lead to catheter-related complications
  • Clear extension tubes for early visualization of blood return
  • Short reverse taper designed to staunch blood loss at insertion site
  • Alcohol resistant polyurethane material for insertion site care and catheter durability
  • Radiopaque catheter material for visualization under fluoroscopy
  • BioFlo PICC® Technology, providing a catheter material more resistant to the accumulation of blood components (platelets and thrombus)
  • Large lumen inner diameters designed to maximise flow rates, minimise risk of catheter occlusions and provide easier blood withdrawal

Features and Technical Details of the BioFlo PICC

Endexo Technology

The base polymer of the catheter material is a combination polyurethane and a proprietary polymer compound. It is this proprietary polymer which reduces the accumulation of blood components (platelets and thrombus)* adhering to the catheter shaft.

This proprietary polymer acts like a ‘non-stick’ surface throughout the catheter material, inside and out, including the cut catheter tip.

Adding the Endexo Technology polymer to the base polyurethane in the manufacturing process eliminates the need to use another form of coating to the catheter or adding other anti-bacterial agents normally associated with bacterial resistance. So no heparin, no antibiotics or antimicrobials.

The Endexo Technology polymer is present for the life of the catheter.

In-vitro blood loop model test results show that on average the BioFlo PICC with Endexo Technology has 87% less thrombus accumulation on its surface compared to commonly used PICCs (based on platelet count).

*The reduction in thrombus accumulation was evaluated using in-vitro and in-vivo models. Pre-clinical in-vitro and in-vivo evaluations do not necessarily predict clinical performance with respect to thrombus formation1

PASV® Valve Technology

PASV® (Pressure Activated Safety Valve) Technology is a specially designed valve to resist backflow and reduce blood reflux on the inside of the catheter.

Infusion – Opens with minimal pressure and automatically closes after infusion.

Aspiration – Opens for sampling and automatically closes to resist pressure fluctuations that may cause reflux.

Closed – Remains closed during normal increases in central venous pressure to prevent reflux.
