CareFusion announces launch of Clipvac from Surgical Site Solutions

10th April 2014

CareFusion has announced the launch of ClipVac, a new hair removal system from Surgical Site Solutions that has been designed to work with its technology.

Optimised exclusively for a new innovative clipper handle from CareFusion, ClipVac connects to CareFusion's new surgical clippers and uses vacuum technology to capture hair clippings as the hair is cut.

It saves time by capturing an average of 98.5 percent of the hair and airborne contaminants at the source, reducing the need for a secondary cleanup process. Vacuum technology has been proven to be safe, highly effective and efficient for hair in surgical or ancillary settings.

CareFusion demonstrated the benefits of the technology alongside its own surgical clippers at the recent Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses conference in Chicago.

Jan Creidenberg, vice-president and general manager of infection prevention at CareFusion, said: "The combination of our innovative new clippers and the ClipVac system promotes best practices for hair removal prior to surgery."

This comes after the firm also launched its new AVAflex vertebral balloon system last month.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801711624-ADNFCR
