    We use the MaxPlus Clear manufactured by CareFusion. 

    We do not use the closed system devices that you mentioned below.  Pharmacy primes the secondary chemo tubing

    1. What type of end cap (needleless access device) do you use for your CVC hubs (i.e. Microclave or Smartsite, etc)?

    2. What type of closed system chemo device do you use for nursing and pharmacy? (i.e. Spiros/ICU medical or Phaseal)? Does anyone use BBraun?
