Kurin™ Lock Technology
Typical collection sets provide skin microbes a direct line to the culture bottle. Seamlessly integrated into familiar collection sets, Kurin® is a new blood culture collection technology focused on preventing the contaminants originating in the patient’s own skin from reaching the culture bottle. Microbes present in skin may reside deep within the dermis layer and can be drawn into blood samples despite proper skin disinfection. Without a way to avoid these microbes, hospitals have been forced to accept high rates of seemingly unavoidable false positive blood cultures—until now.
