Arterial Syringe Vents

POREX® Arterial Syringe Vents are engineered to eliminate blood bypass in arterial syringe devices to protect healthcare workers from exposure to blood and bloodborne pathogens when collecting blood samples from patients. These vents are comprised of porous plastic containing a functional additive that immediately swells upon contact with blood or other fluids. They are optimized for desired airflow and pressure-drop characteristics generated by arterial pressure and are compatible with ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization processes.
