The latest "unofficial rumor" that has been "leaked" is that they are looking
for a Thanksgiving release date on the new Ultraflex, but you had better
count on these being in your Christmas stocking. The Ultraflex is a vertical
oriented teflon cannula, similar to the Sofset, but with a taper to the
cannula which allows easier penetration and less susceptibility to kinking.
Like the Sofset or Tenders/Sils/Comforts it will have an introducer needle
which is removed after placement. Also like the T/S/C's it will have a
disconnect at the platform, not a "pig-tail" like a Sofset. The adhesive
patch will be of the same material as on the T/S/C's. It will come in 8, 10
And there is still talk of the Rapids with disconnect being released. They
are currently available in Germany, but I don't know what agency is holding
their release up in the States (FDA?). Looking forward to their release also.
