The Nexus NIS®-5 Neutral Displacement Technology (accessed with plastic blunt cannula) is engineered and designed to reduce blood reflux upon connection and disconnection.     
Nexus NIS®-5 Neutral Displacement Technology Overview
Nexus NIS®-5 Neutral Displacement Technology is engineered and designed to reduce blood reflux upon connection and disconnection. Nexus NIS®-5 is the perfect choice for short term use in areas such as Emergency room, out-patient surgery, labor and delivery or where the need for Nexus TKO®-5 Anti-Reflux technology is not selected.        Nexus NIS®-5 is the only Neutral Displacement Technology solution designed for use with plastic cannula and offers your patients a new level of safety and protection against unwanted catheter occlusions.  Nexus NIS®-5 provides Microbial Barrier Protection 24/7!™
Our patented Tri-Seal™ design with Slit-Lock™ technology is designed into all of our Needle free devices. The Nexus Tri-Seal™ design provides Microbial Barrier Protection 24/7!™   The Nexus NIS®-5 Tri-Seal™ design with Slit-Lock™ technology has been validated with 3-separate bacteria (S. aureus, S. epidermis and E. coli) by an outside GLP laboratory using a 96-activation protocol with non-locking cannula.
First Level of Protection:                          Second Level of Protection:           Third Level of Protection:
A 360° compressed seal proven to provide a safe and effective microbial barrier protection between the septum and the needle-free connector housing
A smooth, easy to disinfect septum surface, promotes a safe and effective microbial barrier.
The Slit-Lock™ septum protects the internal fluid path from microbial ingress while luer is activating
