    I’m looking to see what other institutions are doing during cellular therapy product infusions.  We currently disconnect the needleless connector from the lumen and infuse the cells via gravity into the lumen. 

    We are looking to change our practice to keep the needleless connector attached to the lumen while we infuse the product. 

    What does your hospital do?  Remove the needleless connector or keep it attached?
