Specialized tubing for blood handling.
A modification of Excelon Medical Tubing 66, Excelon TE Medical Tubing 80 is a direct equivalent to Tygon S-54-HL and offers the same exact physical specifications as the Tygon tubing but at a lower price. As an equivalent product, it can be used in the same applications such as IV or intra-arterial infusion. Plus, because it has been significantly stiffened, it is particularly useful in applications where kinking could be a problem, such as suction and draining blood from the body. It is available in a variety of configurations, including very small sizes.
- Clear with smooth inner bore
- Stiffened to reduce kinking
- Meets USP Class VI criteria
