Making a Material Difference.
The BioFlo PICC is the first PICC of its kind with Endexo Technology, providing a catheter more resistant to the accumulation of blood components (platelets and thrombus).
- The BioFlo PICC is the only PICC manufactured with Endexo Technology, a permanent and non-eluting integral polymer.
- In-vitro blood loop model test results show that on average, the BioFlo PICC with Endexo Technology has 87% less thrombus accumulation on its surface compared to commonly used PICCs based on platelet count.†
- Endexo Technology has been shown to be effective in reducing thrombus accumulation. The reduction in thrombus accumulation was evaluated using in-vitro and in-vivo models. Pre-clinical in-vitro and in-vivo evaluations do not necessarily predict clinical performance with respect to thrombus formation.
- The BioFlo PICC is available with PASV Valve Technology, making it the first catheter that combines the reduced thrombus accumulation benefit with our patented valve designed to automatically resist backflow and reduce blood reflux on the inside of the catheter. The BioFlo PICC is also available in non-valved configurations.

Make Protection Part of the Mix
Endexo Technology is a proprietary polymer that is present throughout the catheter shaft material and remains present for the life of the catheter, providing long-term durability.††
BioFlo Technology is not a coating or impregnated into the catheter. Instead, the Endexo technology polymer is added directly to the base polyurethane during the manufacturing process. Endexo technology is present throughout the catheter material, including the outer surface, inner surface and even the cut catheter tip.
BioFlo Technology does not contain agents that may be associated with bacterial resistance, including antibiotics or antimicrobials. In addition, this catheter does not contain heparin, which may help minimize the complications associated with heparin use.

PASV Valve Technology
The Power of PASV
PASV stands for Pressure Activated Safety Valve which is proprietary to AngioDynamics. The PASV Valve is a direction-specific valve located in the proximal hub of the catheter, outside of the patient and the bloodstream. It is designed to reduce blood reflux into the catheter lumen that could lead to catheter-related complications and has over 10 years of clinical experience.
The PASV Valve product does not have clamps or require a specific needleless connector. The PASV Valve may be maintained with a minimum weekly saline flush.†††
††† Clinicians are instructed to follow institutional protocols concerning PICC maintenance. Heparin may be used based on the physician’s clinical assessment of patient needs or per institutional protocols.
