A Smarter Closed System Transfer Device for Chemotherapy

Millions of healthcare workers are exposed to chemotherapy and other hazardous drugs annually. Studies have shown that exposure to these hazardous drugs can cause serious health problems, “such as cancer, reproductive and development problems… and other adverse effects that can be irreversible even after low-level exposures,” according to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH), and Joint Commission.

Many institutions have adopted Closed System Transfer Devices to protect workers from exposure to chemotherapy and other hazardous drugs, but today’s CSTDs are not complete solutions. It’s time for a smarter Closed System Transfer Device solution designed to solve these issues – discover Halo.

Review CSTD comparisons and studies for usp 800 regulations. Research the use of closed system transfer devices to prevent needle sticks and toxic vapors from chemotherapy preparation and compounding, including splash for healthcare workers, pharmacists, nurses, pharmacy techs. Minimization of hazardous drug exposure for pregnant healthcare workers, NIOSH regulations and sterility maintenance. Compare Needle-free systems and leur-lock compatibility including training and assembly requirements for CSTD and locking mechanisms.

CSTD (Closed System Transfer Devices)

A closed system drug transfer device or "CSTD" is a drug transfer device that mechanically prohibits the transfer of environmental contaminants into a system and the escape of hazardous drug or vapor concentrations outside the system. Open versus closed systems are commonly applied in medical devices to maintain the sterility of a fluid pathway. CSTDs work by preventing the uncontrolled inflow and outflow of contaminants and drugs, preserving the quality of solution to be infused into a patient. Theoretically, CSTDs should enable complete protection to healthcare workers in managing hazardous drugs, but possibly due to improper handling or incomplete product design, contaminants can still be detected despite use of CSTDs.

Chemotherapy Drugs in a Clinical Setting
This study's aim was to determine how HD might spread through touch after handling contaminated vials in simulated pharmacy and nursing environments. Results show residue from HD vials spread as vial was handled in a pharmacy environment in 4 of 5 CSTDs, contaminating pharmacy PPE, ancillary products, and nursing PPE. No HD residue was detected on PPE, ancillary products, or nursing PPE in the pharmacy after using the SEVA system, providing an effective means to contain HD for drug transfer from vial to delivery system.

Cost determination study of closed system transfer devices (CSTD) by ICU Medical
The purpose of this cost determination analysis is to appraise the direct and indirect costs of using a closed system transfer device (CSTD) to prevent occupational exposure to hazardous drugs. The data is from 2011, but is one of very few online resources about the cost of CSTDs. Barnachea L, Lee T, Gitler J. et al. Cost determination study of closed system transfer devices (CSTD).

Effectiveness of a Closed-System Transfer Device in Reducing Surface Contamination in a New Antineop
The objective of this randomized, prospective and controlled study was to investigate the ability of a closed-system transfer device (CSTD; BD-Phaseal) to reduce the occupational exposure of two isolators to 10 cytotoxic drugs and compare to standard compounding devices. This study confirms that using a CSTD may significantly decrease the chemical contamination of barrier isolators compared to standard devices for some drugs, although it does not eliminate contamination totally.Simon N, Vasseur M, Pinturaud M, et al.

Leakage from closed-system transfer devices as detected by a radioactive tracer.
A study of leakage from selected closed-system transfer devices (ChemoClave,, OnGuard, PhaSeal) under experimental conditions is described.Nine manufacturer-trained oncology pharmacists and pharmacy technicians volunteered to participate in an experiment to determine the degree of leakage of a liquid test agent (a radioactive technetium isotope [(99m)Tc] diluted in normal saline) during CSTD-assisted transfer of liquid from vials to syringes per standard practices. The volume of leakage was significantly less with PhaSeal than with OnGuard and ChemoClave when pharmacists and pharmacy technicians used the three CSTDs and (99m)Tc as a tracer.

Multicenter evaluation of a new closed system drug-transfer device in reducing surface contamination
Rigorous protocol study at 13 cancer centers across the United States on the effectiveness of the Halo in reducing surface contamination when compounding and simulated administering antineoplastic drugs, cyclophosphamide and fluorouracil. The Halo was found to effectively reduce surface contamination by cyclophosphamide and fluorouracil, and was also found to be easy to use by healthcare workers. Bartel SB, Tyler TG, Power LA.
