Unlike other devices that use standard syringes with open cylinders and plungers, EQUASHIELD’s distinctive double jacket syringe enclosure makes it the only CSTD to address this issue and eliminate the possibility of exposure through the back of the syringe. EQUASHIELD’s fixed fully shielded needles provide the ultimate protection from accidental needle stick injuries.
The compounding of sterile preparations requires the highest quality standards in order to ensure preparation quality and safety. Parenteral therapies are becoming more complex, and patients may now receive continuous antibiotic therapy or chemotherapy, among other therapies, for several days at home. Consequently, greater attention must be paid to the environment in which these preparations are prepared, the training of personnel and quality assurance procedures to prevent complications and to protect the public more generally. QleanSpace™ meets all NAPRA standards.
We have extensive knowledge in CSTDs and have been implementing CSTDs across Canada since 2002. For both CSTDs and clean rooms, we provide consultative analysis to help cost-justify moving to new safety standards. For clean rooms, we also provide project management, construction pre-work, clean room installation and ongoing warranty, maintenance and support. We can provide an end-to-end solution in environmental safety.
