The FDA granted expanded 510(k) clearance to Kurin for its PIV18 peripheral IV configuration for its blood culture collection set.

Kurin CEO Bob Rogers said the company developed the extension set at the request of customers who used the single-use Kurin Lock for blood culture collection and wanted to expand their use to include draws from infusion lines.

The extension set removes the need for an additional needlestick by enabling nurses to leave the set in the vein after taking the culture.
