The MedLine DeLee Mucus Trap is a device used along with suction aspirator machines or individually to catch and collect secretions and fluids, mucus and specimens of sorts when conducting a trach culture. Properly gathered specimens can be sent off to the lab for testing in a secured and properly labeled container.
The DeLee Specimen Catheter Trap with Contro-Vac Valve and Plug in 8Fr (DYND44108) and 10Fr (DYND44110) include a ready to use system right out of the packaging. The collection container is leak-proof with a tight-sealing screw-on type transport cap - keeping the specimen contents inside secured and free from possible spills that will end up contaminating the specimen. The clear plastic vials make it easy to see the specimen being collected as well as seeing the graduations marked clearly in increments of 1-centimeter on the collection container for accumulating the required amount of specimen on one shot.
The tubing can be used with most suction machines and can be applied universally with canisters too. The marked indicators on the catheter help see how far the catheter has been inserted in, for the safety of the patient. The sterile mucus specimen trap includes a patient label for proper record-keeping of the specimen collected. The included orange cap marks the end of the specimen collection process, screw on the cap for finalization and send-off for testing.
