The Tego¿ Needle Free Access Device is intended for use as an accessory to a vascular access device (catheter) used in Hemodialysis or as an accessory to an Intravascular Administration Set for the administration or withdrawal of fluids to a patient through a cannula or needle placed in the vein or artery. The Tego¿ is a needle-free capping device which closes the end of the catheter. The Tego¿ will permit access to the catheter without the use of needles and therefore passively aid in the reduction of needle stick injuries.
