Recent studies shows that the usage of these device called Closed System Drug Transfer Devices in all the healthcare units has shown improved results at work places and reducing contamination in surrounding by controlling the leakage or spillage of the toxic medicines. The entire technicians pharmaceutical professional are concentrating more on developing these safety device for the welfare of the mankind. The healthcare organization have already developed some of the effective Closed System Drug Transfer Devices

One of the effective devices called PhaSeal is a Closed System Drug Transfer Devices for controlling the Hazardous Drugs where the component devices are shared to create an efficient system. These safety devices are developed to support safe handling of the medicines especially cytotoxic drugs used in chemotherapy. During the manufacturing of these toxic drugs, accidental leakage or spillage may occur to avoid this mess these devices can help very effectively to control the contamination during the manufacture, administration and waste handling of these drugs by using this system.

This closed system contains three important parts they are Protector, Injector Trap Lock and Infusion Adaptor.  All these components are sealed with elastomeric membrane. The Elastomeric membranes are combined together through a cut injection cannula and act as tight seals to prevent the leakage.

The device called the Protector and it is also called as drug vial transfer adaptor is strongly fitted to the drug vial and is used as a stopping position between the drug vial and the injector. Injector Lure Lock is a drug transfer needle device which contains single lumen needle captured into a plastic chamber. Onside is locked to an external device prepared with lure lock fitting. Infusion Adapter is an intravascular administration fixed and helps as the connecting part between the IV bag and an external IV line. It has a connector which is built inside the device and helps it likely to blend up the drugs into the infusion solution with the help of sealed double membrane technique.  Thus PhaSeal is a very efficient Closed System Drug Transfer Device.
