It is recommended that the sterile lubricating jelly used during catheter insertion should be supplied in a pre-filled syringe, to allow effective instillation into the urethra, ensuring the entire urethra is lubricated before insertion of the catheter.

Making an informed choice

To making an informed choice for your patient, you need to know what options are available to you. We offer three choices of catheterisation jelly, each available in 6ml (female) or 11ml (male) pre-filled syringes.

All pre-filled syringes in our catheterisation jelly range are single-use, sterile, and designed specifically for use during catheterisation procedures.
