Why Universal Spike?
A vented/non-vented or "universal" spike allows an administration set to be used with all types of solution containers. The vent should be open when infusing from non-collapsible containers (glass and semi-rigid plastic) and closed when infusing from collapsible plastic containers (bags).
EasyDrop Flow Regulator
Easydrop is a single-use disposable flow regulator which allows highly accurate control of flow rate in gravity administered I.V. solutions. It'is a very low-cost alternative to highly expensive I.V. pump systems (with expensive and dedicated high pressure I.V. sets). Easydrop is used with standard gravity I.V. sets and requires a "two hands" safety operation for any adjustment. The Easydrop operating principle is the "triple labyrinth", the GVS patented technology that ensures a very accurate flow rate and high stability in delivery throughout the whole infusion session.
No electrical power is required. Easydrop has a very light weight and a modern look. Easydrop can be added as a component of a standard gravity I.V. line or can be provided into an extension set to be connected to an existing standard gravity I.V. line.
IV Flow Regulator Characteristics
GVS IV Flow Regulators provide constant flow rate during the entire infusion procedure. There is no need for continuous adjustment of flow rate and there is no risk of over-infusion. Because it takes two hands to set and adjust our products, this prevents accidental changes in flow.
It is very easy to accomplish the required flow rate, and prime the IV line. Just set the requested flow rate and count the drops and the GVS IV Flow Regulator is ready to use.
The GVS IV Flow Regulator is the best solution for guarding against the high investment required to purchase infusion pumps which are also involving costly IV set. GVS IV Flow Regulators can be used to upgrade any gravity IV set. No expensive maintenance is required; GVS IV Flow Regulators are disposable single use products.
Accuracy is always important and The GVS IV Flow Regulator is the solution for the well known problem of inconsistency provided by the roller clamps.
Stability is a key characteristic of GVS IV Flow Regulators. Stability of flow rate over the 24 hours of infusion allows use of an IV set equipped with the GVS IV Flow Regulators in critical applications. This is due to the large size of the channels in its triple labyrinth path which avoids the risk of clogging due to micro-crystals (the use of our Speedflow IV filter downstream of the GVS IV Flow Regulator eliminates crystalline components, dirt, air, and bacteria. See section IV Solution Filter).
GVS IV Flow Regulators are compatible with any existing gravity IV set or they can be provided in an Extension Set. The product can be used in a variety of applications, including drug delivery and parenteral nutrition can be made through them. GVS IV Flow Regulators are Latex, PVC and free of animal origin substances.

Easydrop is available in single and double calibration scale. Easydrop single scale has a general purpose scale that can be used for any kind of solution. Easydrop double scale has one first scale for liquid having density lower than 10% (i.e. light solutions with basis of NaCl 0.9% or Glucose 5% and 10% or Mannitol 5% and 10%) and a second scale for liquid having higher density (40% scale calibrated for solutions made with a basis of Glucose 20% or Mannitol 18%). Personalized scales are available upon request.
Suitable for EtO (44C/111F max) and gamma (50kGy) sterilization. Higher temperature can cause a reduction in performance.
Maximum operating pressure
0.5 bar (7 psi) in static condition, Gravity set.
Maximum storage and operating temperature
40C (104F) indoor operation
Tolerance of flow rate*
- range 5-15 ml/h not defined
- range 20ml/h tolerance on flow rate -10 / + 50%
- range 21-40ml/h tolerance on flow rate -10 / + 30%
- range 41-250ml/h tolerance on flow rate -10 / + 20%
Stability of flow rate
10% flow rate fluctuation during 24 hours infusion (tested with NaCl 0.9% solution from glass bottles).
- Do not use Easydrop in OPEN position, this will cause an uncontrolled liquid delivery (about 3 liters/hour).
- Easydrop cannot be used for the administration of blood or blood components.
- Using a high viscosity solution can cause lower flow rate than indicated on the scale. Compensate for this by increasing the head pressure applied.
- Use of a 15 micron filter into the drip chamber is suggested in order to prevent crystals from blocking the fluid path inside Easydrop.
- Drop counting is always necessary in order to confirm proper flow rate. If necessary, adjust the height of the I.V. solution container to increase or decrease the flow rate.
Our IV sets are DEHP free. Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice advise to usee administration sets free of di-ethylhexyl-phthalate (DEHP) to administer lipid-based infusates, such as IVFE or TNA. DEHP is lipophilic and is extracted into the lipid solution with commonly used polyvinyl chloride administration sets and containers. DEHP is considered a toxin, and studies have demonstrated increased DEHP levels in lipid solutions, which is especially a risk with neonatal, pediatric, and long-term home care patients (42).
