Catheter Locks

Citra-Lock and Citra-Flow (pre-filled syringes) are a safe and effective catheter lock solution which are available in vials containing 30% and 4% concentrations, as well as a prefilled 4% syringe containing 3mls of solution.

Trisodium Citrate (TSC) is an anticoagulant with unique antimicrobial properties and obviates the need to use heparin. It therefore provides a safe and viable alternative to heparin, and avoids some of the well-known adverse side effects such as heparin-associated bleedings, whilst simultaneously inhibiting bacterial growth and therefore preventing infection at catheter / port sites.

The vials are needle-free with a drip free luer-slip/luer-lock connection.

Zebra Medical offers extensive training on this product to nursing staff, whether in renal, oncology or ICU applications, to ensure a safe and stress-free transition from heparin to Citra-Lock / Citra-Flow.
