BETHLEHEM, PA – January 14, 2016 – Focused on patient and customer needs, B. Braun Medical Inc. will feature the latest services and technology in its robust parenteral nutrition portfolio at this year’s American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.)

“Clinical Nutrition 360 is an innovative, full-service approach to meeting the individualized clinical needs of patients and our customers,” said Rick Williamson, Vice President of Pharmaceutical Marketing at B. Braun Medical. “Whether through in-house compounding or outsourcing, Clinical Nutrition 360 can help optimize the safe administration of the appropriate parenteral nutrition products for the individual needs of patients.”

B. Braun also will showcase its APEX™ micro compounder – (coming soon) – used in conjunction with its own clinical support software TPN Manager with Trissel’s™ Ca/P Safety Check Software.
