Corvida Medical, a firm based in Coralville, Iowa, obtained FDA 510(k) clearance for the Halo Closed System Transfer Device, a product designed to prevent clinicians from being exposed to hazardous medications such as those used in chemotherapy.
The system provides guaranteed air-tight and leak-proof connections to vials and was designed to have fewer pieces and fewer steps to connect them. The system features swabbable raised seals and also helps prevent needle-stick injuries.
According to Corvida’s press release, the system received ONB classification from the FDA by “demonstrating no escape of hazardous drug or vapor concentration, no transfer of environmental contaminants, and prevention of microbial ingress.”
