What is Bionector TKO®?

Bionector TKO® combines the market-leading needle-free device with a valve that quite simply stops catheter tip reflux. With Bionector TKO® the valve opens on injection and infusion to allow administration of IV therapy. Then, the valve closes instantaneously on disconnection, holding the fluid column in place and preventing reflux at the catheter tip. Bionector TKO also offers protection against needle-stick injury and microbial contamination. 

“The Bionector TKO® is a CT-rated needle-free device for use during pressure injection to maintain a totally closed system”

Why Choose Bionector TKO®?

Bionector TKO® is making catheter occlusion a thing of the past as this easy to use, innovative product has been specifically designed and is proven to reduce catheter occlusion by controlling the bi-directional flow of fluid, infusate and catheter tip blood reflux. Occlusions can be commonplace in patients with vascular access lines. This is accepted as normal, with occlusion and their consequences being dealt with as a matter of routine. The most common are; thrombotic occlusions when blood or clotting agents accumulate inside the catheter. Persistent withdrawal occlusion when fibrin is aspirated into the catheter. But occlusions cost you money. Anticoagulant treatment is expensive, nursing time is increased, and lines may need to be replaced if they can’t be cleared. Occlusions also affect your patients as treatment cant be delivered as needed, they may need to stay in hospital for longer, there’s an increased risk of infection, and if the line cant be unblocked they have to undergo a second placement procedure. However, Bionector TKO eliminates the need for heparin flushes in mid to long-term catheters.

Reduces Thrombotic Occlusions by Preventing Blood Reflux From:

  • Syringe and giving set disconnections
  • Syringe plunger rebound
  • IV bag running dry
  • Venous pressure changes.

It is Also Clinically Proven to Reduce:

  • Catheter occlusions by 88% (50.4 to 5.8 per 1,000 catheter days)*
  • Loss of IV catheter by 91% (9% to 0.8%)*
  • Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) usage by 85%* .

“Bionector TKO® is an easy to use, innovative product, which is designed and proven to help greatly reduce catheter occlusions.”
