convenient packaging has an attractive modern design containing the
ready-to-use SafetyCat® Safety Catheter, and is easy to open, even with
limited manual dexterity due to the closing flap with finger hole.

X-treme® System allows a highly comfortable, quick and completely
non-touch catheterisation. All that you have to do is open, remove and

standards for reliable safety. It features the SafetyCat® Safety
Catheter which has been made in Germany for 30 years and used by
