EuroCap (Component of LVP/SVP)

Eurocap is a safety cap welded onto the bottleneck of the LVP bottle. It is made of Thermo Plastic elastomer (TPE) that is housed in a PE enclosure (cap). TPE works as an elastic re-sealant, and it completely and fully reseals, even after a spike/needle has been inserted and removed through it. The conventional LVP Bottle-pack infusion with Otsuka/nipple head does not reseal, so there is a great risk of contamination through the opening that is created by the insertion and removal of a spike or needle. The LVP with the nipple head is also not easy for the health workers to use, due to hardness of the plastic material. In some instances, it becomes very difficult to insert spike or administer medication.
