    Hi all,

    It gets discussed here on and off but since this has been a hot topic for us for a while, here goes:

    What brand of needleless connector (cap) does your unit/area use? 

    And if you’ve recently switched products, which NC/cap did you use most recently?

    For anyone interested in following the thread, we use SmartSite by BD and have used them for some time.

    Thanks for the feedback.
