Vygon is committed to working with healthcare professionals around the UK to provide a wide range of high quality products, helping them deliver best practice solutions to their patients.

With the healthcare sector under constant pressure to improve infection prevention and patient experience, hospitals throughout the UK are improving practice by using Bionector on the majority of all cannulae. The safety of both patients and staff is a high priority to all hospitals, and with the increased awareness of the risk of needle-stick injuries and sharp safe directives the use of a needle-free device such as Bionector is now commonplace.

“Vygon is committed to working with healthcare professionals around the UK to provide a wide range of high quality products, helping them deliver best practice solutions to their patients. Bionector helps us deliver on this commitment as it is not only shown to help reduce infection, it also helps hospitals to reduce the need for sharps in line with sharp safe initiatives.”    
Luke Rawlinson, Business Development Manager, Vygon (UK) Ltd

Bionector was first commercially available in the UK in 1994. Today Bionector is one of the UK’s leading needle-free devices, offering closed IV access for seven days or 360 accesses. Bionector seals the catheter hub between accesses, reducing exposure to atmosphere and improving the ability to disinfect the access device which in turn reduces risk of infection.
