Iodised Oil Resistant Mixing and Injection System for Conventional Transarterial Chemoembolisation (cTACE)
Mix Preparation Recommendations **


• The volume of the cytotoxic drug should be less than the volume of the iodised oil, ideally in a 1: 2 ratio
• The cytotoxic drug should be pushed into the syringe containing the iodised oil (water in oil)
• Mix at least 20 times for proper mixing

Mixing Syringes A and B (20ml) - for multiple mixes easily and safely

C - Particulate filter for taking iodised oil

F - 3-way tap with 4 connection ports (patented) - for multiple mixing in simplicity and safety

G - Female-female connector

H - 1ml and 3ml injection syringes - for easy and safe injection

Preparation of the mixture for cTACE

Preparation of the anticancer drug mixture - iodised oil



• Withdraw iodised oil and anticancer drug into the 2x 20 mL mixing syringes
• Connect the mixing syringes to the 3-way / 4-connection stopcock
• Push the anticancer drug into the syringe containing iodised oil



• Mix at least 20 times to obtain a homogeneous mixture



• Connect the tap to the microcatheter
• Iodised oil emulsion + anticancer drug
• Possibility of re-emulsifying / remixing within the closed system

Features & benefits
