B. Braun Expands Portfolio of Eco-Friendly, Large-Volume Irrigation Containers

TITAN™ XL—The only large-volume, flexible containers on the market that are not made with natural rubber latex, DEHP or PVC

BETHLEHEM, PA – January 21, 2015 – B. Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun), a leader in infusion therapy and pain management, announced today the launch of 3L Lactated Ringers for Irrigation. This launch completes B.Braun’s TITAN™ XL line of large-volume, flexible irrigation containers, which now includes 2L and 3L Sterile Water for Irrigation and 0.9% Sodium Chloride for Irrigation and 3L 1.5% Glycine for Irrigation USP. 

“B.Braun has been a pioneer in developing fluid containers that are environmentally friendly and focused on patient safety,” said Rick Williamson, Vice President of Pharmaceutical Marketing at B.Braun. “We are very excited about our robust line of safe and effective flexible irrigation containers within B.Braun’s TITAN XL line, which complements our broad family of IV containers,” added Williamson.

With this additional TITAN XL container, B.Braun will further expand its line of solution containers that are not made with natural rubber latex, DEHP (a plasticizer and known toxicant) or PVC (a likely carcinogen when incinerated).

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. 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 solution containers that are not made with DEHP or PVC. B.Braun is strongly committed to finding alternative methods to manufacture safer products such as the TITAN XL irrigation bags. B.Braun is a proud member of Practice Greenhealth, a membership organization for institutions and businesses in the healthcare field who are engaged in reducing their environmental footprints.
