Reply To: Cellular therapy infusions-hub to hub or through cap?
We infuse all products through the clave. We have used a couple of different caps/claves over the years and have always left them on.
Is there literature to support one way or the other?

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!
