General information

Sterile item, used for parenteral administration of injectable preparations.

Not for use with blood or blood products.


Synonyms: Intravenous administration set and giving set.

A collection of sterile devices designed to conduct fluids from an intravenous (IV) fluid container to a patient’s venous system; used for gravitational intravenous administration.



- Spike or perforator


- Air inlet with air filter and protective cap.


- Drip-counting chamber.


- Flow regulator.


- Y-injection site.


- Luer-lock connection to vascular system.


The material components must not modify the properties of the fluids or solutions passing through the infusion set. 


- Medical grade materials, PVC-based.


- Transparent (allowing bubble detection), supple and resistant to kinking.


- Minimum length: 150cm, giving the IV set an overall length of 170-180cm.


- ID 3mm, OD 4.1mm

Perforator or Spike:

- Materials: plastic  ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), POM (polyacetal), polystirole.


- Hollow device, double channel with sharp tapering cannulae, located at the proximal end of the IV set, ensuring a safe seal between the IV line and the fluid container (bottle or bag).


- Spike can be moulded as part of the infusion chamber or connected by non-kinking tubing.

Air inlet:

(for gravity infusions)

- Open air inlet for glass bottle or rigid plastic container.


- Closed air inlet for plastic bag or pouch.


- Incorporated into the spike or perforator base with bacteria filter and closable Eurocap system.

Drip-counting chamber:

- Materials: medical-grade PVC and polypropylene.


- Transparent, supple, compressible bag with calibrated tube (upper end) providing even drop formation: 20 drops of ±1ml.


- Bacterial filter 15-20µm (chamber, lower end) designed to retain particles.

Flow regulator:

- Material:  (ABS, PE, polystyrene.)


- Small wheel referred to as a roller clamp situated between the drip-counting chamber and the IV connector.


A good quality roller clamp enables precise fluid regulation by narrowing the tube lumen by compression, without damaging the tubing and allows to stop the drip when needed.



Y injection site:

- Allows the injection of emergency drugs into the flow. The Y site is located at +/-20cm from the IV connection.


- A Y-shaped rigid plastic tube, with a minimum length of 40mm to avoid perforating the tube when inserting a needle.


- The injection site is closed with a tight, non-removable rubber membrane.


Note: The self-sealing bung, close to the IV line’s proximal end, have been cancelled due to its needle-sticking hazard. 

Terminal connection:

- Male Luer lock, preferably mobile.


- Protection cap.


- With or without a purging filter.

Unit presentation:

1 infusion set, single-use, sterile, individually peel packed.
