For Veterinary Clinics administering chemotherapy, EQUASHIELD® provides the highest level of protection to enable you to do what you do best, provide optimal care for our companion animals.Compounding chemotherapy without proper PPE/Engineering Controls has been linked to both acute and long-term health risks, including cancer.
Short bursts of exposure to hazardous drugs over a long period of time may pose a long term health risk. EQUASHIELD’s easy to use CSTD protects you and your staff from hazardous drug leaks, sprays or aerosols that can be created during drug preparation, administration and disposal.
EQUASHIELD’s easy to use vial adaptors make accessing the vial a breeze, without a need of any assembly fixture.
EQUASHIELD’s Syringe Unit with prefilled sterile air prevents environmental contamination from entering the drug vial, protecting our companion animals. Intuitively designed connectors, make the system extremely simple to use under any conditions.
If you are already using a Closed System today or are thinking about incorporating a Closed System in your Veterinary practice, consider EQUASHIELD CSTD as it is Safe, Simple and Closed.
