B. Braun Receives FDA Approval For New Large-Volume Intravenous Containers

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- B. Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun), a leader in infusion therapy and pain management, announced today that it has received FDA approval of 0.9% Sodium Chloride for Irrigation in 2L and 3L IV containers. The approval initiates B.Braun's launch of TITAN® XL, a line of flexible intravenous bags that offers large-volume irrigation and parenteral nutrition solutions for compounding.

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. With the addition of the new TITAN containers, B.Braun will expand its line of IV products that are not manufactured 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 three decades 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 IV containers that are not manufactured with DEHP or PVC. B.Braun is keenly focused on continuing to find alternative methods to manufacture safer products such as the TITAN XL bags. 

B.Braun's Rick Williamson, Vice President of Pharmaceutical Marketing has been a key contributor to the recent success of the expanding US drug delivery portfolio. "We listened to the requests of our customers for fluid containers that are focused on patient safety and that are environmentally friendly," said Williamson. "We are especially proud to offer the only large-volume containers not manufactured with natural rubber latex, DEHP or PVC."
