    Hey Amy, 

    We infuse all cellular infusions (stem cells, bone marrow, CAR-T, DLIs, NK cells) directly through to the hub without a clave.

    Hi Amy,

    We remove the cap for all cellular infusions except granuloucytes. Thanks!

    Curious if you connect your products (stem cells, CAR-T cells) directly to the hub or infuse through the clave. We’ve had a few stuck tubings with power lines and new tubing we’re using and we are hoping to move to infuse through the clave. Just trying to get some other pediatric input. Thanks!
