Excelsior Medical is a privately held medical device company that offers a number of products that fulfill the needs of the healthcare practitioner. These products include: saline and heparin flush syringes, dispensing pumps, syringe pumps and SwabCap®.
Excelsior Medical was founded in 1989. In 1990, they introduced the PharmAssist dispensing pump to reconstitute powdered drugs into liquid form. In 1995, they developed and introduced the ESP syringe pump to complement the PharmAssist dispensing system. In 1997, they introduced Syrex prefilled catheter flush syringes and have grown over the years to become one of the largest manufacturers of prefilled flush syringes in the U.S. In 2007, they introduced the new ZR family of syringes that were designed specifically to minimize syringe related reflux and begin their focus on developing products for intra-luminal catheter care. They are also one of the very few manufacturers that 100% terminally sterilizes all its prefilled syringe products.
All of their Prefilled Catheter Flush Syringes are manufactured and terminally sterilized in the U.S. in Neptune, New Jersey.
Leaders in Catheter Care Innovation
In 2009, Excelsior Medical launched SwabCap®, a needleless connector cap that contains 70% IPA as a disinfectant. SwabCap effectively disinfects and protects needleless connectors between accesses, helping clinicians provide better patient care and comply with valve disinfection protocols. Excelsior has the unique ability to combine its ZR® saline flush syringes and SwabCap® into one convenient product, SwabKIT™, increasing technique standardization and compliance.
