The Antimicrobial Catheter Lock System

Antimicrobial efficacy

The European Renal Best Practice (ERBP) and the hygiene guideline of the German dialysis standard recommend the use of antimicrobial lock solutions as these solutions allow the rate of catheter-associated infections to be reduced substantially.

  • Instillation of TauroLock™ into the catheter lumen prevents infections
  • Application in long-term and short-term catheters
  • Effective against all bacteria tested (including MRSA and VRSA)
  • The range of effectiveness of TauroLock™ covers a wide range of bacteria and fungi
  • TauroLock™ is not an antibiotic; no bacterial resistance has been observed
  • TauroLock™ avoids colonization of catheters at the planctonic level and avoids the development of a biofilm.

TauroLock kills bacteria and fungi within two hours, a timeframe available between two treatments.

The antimicrobial effect of TauroLock™ significantly reduces catheter related infections in dialysis, oncology and parenteral nutrition.
