HALO® Closed System Drug-Transfer Device
A true closed system.
Discover HALO®, your complete solution for hazardous drug preparation and administration.
Each year, millions of healthcare workers are exposed to chemotherapy and other hazardous drugs while preparing and administering drug therapies to patients.1 The HALO system from Fresenius Kabi is an airtight and leak-proof closed system drug-transfer device (CSTD) that mechanically prohibits the transfer of environmental contaminants into the system and the escape of drug or vapor concentrations outside the system – thereby minimizing individual and environmental exposure to drug vapor, aerosols and spills.
The HALO system also prevents microbial ingress for up to 168 hours.2*
Make the HALO system your standard of care for enhanced protection of patients and caregivers.
The HALO system offers a smarter CSTD solution.
Airtight, secure connections provide a proven physical barrier that prevents the transfer of contaminants into the system and the escape of drug or vapor concentrations outside the system to protect against exposure.
