Make False Positive Results
a Thing of the Past

Sequestration Syringe
Sequestration Syringe
Diversion Redefined.
Introducing the Sequestration Syringe™ Blood Culture Collection Device,
exclusively from C-Quest Medical.
An innovative, simplistic design, the patent-pending Sequestration Syringe features a proprietary Unidirectional Check Valve that automatically diverts and sequesters the initial 1.5mL of blood. The valve assures that blood can only flow in one direction, to prohibit sequestered blood from contaminating the culture.

Also, a distinctive “T” Valve on the syringe connects to a universal bottle holder that enables conventional blood culture collection in either thin or wide neck aerobic and anaerobic bottles.
Step Back to the Future of Diversion.
Unlike unfamiliar and costly diversion alternatives, the Sequestration Syringe features a familiar, clinician-friendly syringe design that requires virtually no training. As a result, greater efficiency and cost savings are achieved, while promoting standardization for rapid, accurate blood culture collection procedures throughout the hospital.  
Half the Price. Twice the Protection.
Based on current cost analysis, the price of the Sequestration Syringe is less than half of othe
r commercially available blood culture collection diversion devices. What’s more, every Sequestration Syringe is provided with a complete C-Quest Procedure Kit at no additional cost. The result is unparalleled savings for advanced diversion technology, and everything you need to optimize the blood culture collection process, exclusively from C-Quest Medical.
