Our product range includes specialised catheter lock solutions for patients in different contexts. TauroLock™-U25.000 ensures a particularly strong prophylaxis against occlusion, thanks to the active ingredient urokinase.
Indication and effect
TauroLock™-U25.000 has been approved for instillation in all central-venous access systems. This lock solution reliably prevents the formation of bacterial biofilms within catheters: Patients can avoid infections and maintain a high patency rate.
TauroLock™-U25.000 is based on three active ingredients:
- citrate (4 %)
- urokinase (25,000 units per ml)
Taurolidine has a broad antimicrobial activity (incl. MRSA and VRE), while citrate works as an anticoagulant. Urokinase has a thrombolytic effect, breaking up blood clotting in its early stages.
Before applying TauroLock™-U25.000, you need to dissolve the vial’s content (i.e. 25,000 IU urokinase) with 5 ml of TauroLock™. In-between treatment sessions, instil the clear, colourless solution into the vascular access system (VAD). Please note that medical staff should check the filling volume of each catheter or port system.
