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.
