OptiLube Active
Catheterisation Jelly

A sterile gel developed for optimum lubrication, OptiLube Active brings the added benefits of a local anaesthetic (Lidocaine 2%) and antiseptic (Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.25%). So it helps make patients more comfortable during procedures such as catheter insertion, and reduces the risk of infection.

With this very specific clinical use, OptiLube Active combines our expertise in lubrication and urology products, and is ideally complemented by our Ugo Urology range.

Provided in 6ml and 11ml pre-filled sterile syringes – each individually wrapped in sterile packaging – OptiLube Active enables precise application. Having designed the product and packaging in collaboration with clinicians, we’ve created a series of beneficial features:

  • Syringe falls easily from its protective tray, supporting an Aseptic Non Touch Technique when preparing a sterile field
  • Manufacturing and expiry dates, and LOT numbers, on each syringe’s tear-off strip are easy to retain for accurate recording
  • Easy-to-prime syringe for precise, controlled application
  • Latex-free and hypoallergenic
  • Ergonomic syringe design eliminates the risk of suction or damage to tissue
