    At UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital we started doing all infusions through our standard microclave caps within the last two years. Including CarT, HSCT, NK cells

    We infuse hub to hub for stem cell/bone marrow infusion. We have not yet started CAR infusion but plan to very soon, so I am also interested what other institutions do as well.  Thanks so much!

    At my institution we generally give cell therapy products including (BM, PBSC, and CAR T-cells) hub-to-hub to prevent damage to the cells. I was wondering if anyone could comment on whether their institution gives HSCT and CAR cells through a Clave, T-cap, or other blue connector or if your institution removes the cap and infuses cell therapy products hub-to-hub as we do?
