TauroLock

TauroLock lock solution for vascular catheters is used to reduce the number of catheter-related infections and to maintain patency.

TauroLock lock solution:

  • is bactericidal and fungicidal, within 2-4 hours 500 microorganisms are killed
  • prevents the formation of biofilm in the catheter
  • maintains catheter patency
  • is safe for patients and staff

Taurolock can be used in dialysis catheters, central venous catheters, subcutaneous venous  ports and PICC lines.

TauroLock can be used for both children and adults.

TauroLock is also present with the addition of heparin or urokinase in cases where additional anticoagulant or thrombolytic properties are desirable.
