Microbial Ingress Tests on Closed System Transfer Devices–Is anyone using this information to support cost savings?
Here is the report of an independent study, entitled:
A 7 Days Microbial Ingress Test of Single Use Vials Utilizing the EQUASHIELD® Closed System Drug Transfer Device
The aim of which was:
To perform an extreme-use-conditions test and assess the ability of the Equashield® Closed System Transfer Device to prevent the microbial contamination of parenteral drug vials during 7 days of use.

Other studies like this one have been performed over the past few years and published.
We wonder if anyone is using the information in any form to save money.
