Huber Needles are special designed needles with a deflected point. The point eliminates the potential to "core" a septum such as an injection cap or a vascular port. Only a non-coring Huber needle may be used with implanted port devices. A Huber Needle must always be used to access any vascular access port in order to prolong the life and to protect the catheter from being occluded by a potential septum core.
Huber Needles have a volume of 0.5mL and are available in both straight & w/ a 90-degree bend.
