CheckCLIP (Box of 100)
First hand exposure to medication errors and near-misses inspired three Australian paramedics to invent the Qlicksmart CheckCLIP medication ID labeling device.
The CheckCLIP medication ID labeling decide is simple and quick to use, enabling a clear visual cross-checking of the medication details without obstructing the incremental dosage markings on the syringe. This significantly improves the tracking and identification of medications, and assists in compliance with the Five Rights of Medication Administration.
The CheckCLIP medication ID labeling device allows clinicians to draw up the drug with both the syringe and ampoule remaining in their hands at all time. This reduces the risk of both syringe swap and ampoule swap errors.
Price is for a box of 100 pieces.
Keep track of medications using the CheckCLIP medication ID clips. Invented by EMPS for use in the field, these clips can help you avoid medication errors during busy and stressful times.

How many different versions of the CheckCLIP are there?
There are two versions of the CheckCLIP: Ampoule version (pink) and Vial version (green).
Is the CheckCLIP sterile or can it be sterilised?
Not to our current knowledge. The CheckCLIP comes in a non-sterile box of 100 pieces, and should not be sterilised. CheckCLIP is only used after the drug / medication in the ampoule or vial has been drawn up.
How should the CheckCLIP be disposed of?
Once medication has been administered and drug identification is no longer required, the whole syringe unit (with CheckCLIP and ampoule or vial attached) should be disposed of as a medical waste in a sharps container.
Can the CheckCLIP hold onto ampoules and vials securely?
The CheckCLIP is designed to clip securely on Luer and Luer-Lock syringes with a one-way mechanical action (barbs) to prevent ampoules or vials from dislodging.
Will the CheckCLIP prevent the cannula/needle from being placed securely?
No. The height of CheckCLIP is 2mm, and it is designed to fit within the standard tolerances of Luer syringes, between the syringe tip’s base and the cannula or needle applied. If the cannula or needle is not applied correctly, it may dislodge regardless of the CheckCLIP.
Could there be a cross infection issue during drug administration?
The CheckCLIP is a non-sterile, single-use device only and should only be used with ampoules after the drug solutions have been fully drawn up (or as per prescriptions). Remaining solutions in the ampoule after the CheckCLIP has been inserted cannot be used later.
Universal precautions should always be adopted. Please check with your organisation’s procedures regarding drug administration.
Is the CheckCLIP latex free?
Yes. The CheckCLIP is made of polypropylene (PP).
