Ivera Medical alters Curos Tip intravenous cap product

Carsbad-based Ivera Medical has launched a revised version of its Curos Tip disinfecting cap for use on intravenous access devices including tubing and syringes.

The revision comes in response to an allegation from a competitor that wasn't identified that Ivera's devices infringed on two existing patents.

While Ivera has denied the validity of the claims, it redesigned its disinfecting cap so as to fall well outside of the patent claims. The company also reassures its customers that there will be no difference in the function between the earlier and the new devices.

"The product is expected to be released shortly and will replace the current version of Curos Tips, which will no longer be manufactured," the company writes. "The changes in the product will require no new regulatory filings. The packaging and product number will remain the same, allowing for a seamless transition to the new product."
