    We use the KVO cap by Nexus. It has cutting edge anti-reflux technology, is power injectable, reduces CVL occlusions by 85% (per the company).

    We’ve been pleased x 1 year thus far.

    Hi All:

    Simple question!

    What CVC caps/needleless connectors do you use? Pros and cons to your caps?

    We use Microclave Clear and have been for several years.  Our PVA (Product Value Analysis) and CVC Taskforce wants us to compare to what else is out there.
