OptiLube Active CHG Free

To give clinicians more choice, Optimum Medical has introduced OptiLube Active CHG Free to their range of lubricating gels for catheterisation procedures. It’s ideally suited to patients with contraindications to Chlorhexidine.

Chlorhexidine can be responsible for hypersensitivity reactions in some patients so we developed OptiLube Active CHG Free as an alternative option to clinicians, focused on improving patient outcomes. It maintains the added benefits of the local anaesthetic (Lidocaine 2%).

Provided in 6ml and 11ml pre-filled syringes, presented in rupture resistant packaging, OptiLube Active CHG Free enables precise, controlled application.

OptiLube Active CHG Free offers the following features and benefits:

  • Syringe falls easily from its protective blister packaging to achieve an Aseptic Non Touch Technique
  • Manufacturing, expiry dates, and LOT numbers, on each syringes tear off strip are easy to retain for accurate recording
  • Ergonomic design of the tip eliminates the risk of suction or damage to tissue
  • Measuring facility on side of syringe to enable precise application of a controlled volume of jelly
  • Latex-free and hypoallergenic
