User-Friendly Cap and Valve from Parker Labs

Parker Laboratories Inc (Fairfield, NJ) has released the Snap-Cap and valve, which is designed to allow opening and closing of ultrasound gel bottles with one hand. The Snap-Cap keeps the nozzle and aperture protected from the work environment, and its easy opening and closing allow the user to maintain position and procedure continuity. The Snap-Cap’s self-sealing silicone valve instantly cuts off the flow of gel, which maintains a clean and safe work environment by preventing drips and product residue. The valve also eliminates product drawback into the bottle, reducing the potential for cross-contamination. The Snap-Cap is available on all of Parker Labs’ 0.25-liter and 8-ounce dispenser bottles.
