B. Braun Expands its TITAN(TM) XL Line of Large-Volume Containers
The only large-volume, flexible containers on the market that are not made with natural rubber latex, DEHP or PVC
BETHLEHEM, Pa., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — B. Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun), a leader in infusion therapy and pain management, announced today the launch of a new 1.5% Glycine Irrigation USP TITAN XL 3L container.
“This is the third launch within our growing line of safe, effective and eco-friendly fluid therapy products,” said Rick Williamson, Vice President of Pharmaceutical Marketing at B.Braun. “We recently announced the launch of TITAN( )XL 3L Sterile Water for Irrigation and have plans to further expand our TITAN( )XL portfolio over the next several months,” added Williamson.
B.Braun is committed to continuing to find alternative methods to manufacture safer products such as the TITAN XL irrigation bags that are not made with natural rubber latex, DEHP or PVC. Exposure to these toxic materials has been a growing concern for healthcare facilities around the world. Studies show that excessive exposure to DEHP can potentially lead to adverse health effects, especially to a patient’s liver, kidneys and lungs, as well as their heart rate and blood pressure.(1)
More than thirty years ago, B.Braun recognized the environmental and patient risks posed by products containing DEHP and PVC. As a result, B.Braun was the first medical device manufacturer to remove these harmful substances from many products and today is the only supplier that offers a full line of solution containers that are not made with DEHP or PVC. B.Braun continues to lead the way in the healthcare industry by impacting the way hospitals evaluate and purchase their products – a true testament to B.Braun’s ecological awareness and patient-centric philosophy.
