B. Braun to Raise Awareness of PVC, DEHP Alternatives at CleanMed 2017

CleanMed 2017

BETHLEHEM, PA – May 16, 2017 – B. Braun Medical Inc., an industry pioneer in offering products not made with PVC and DEHP, will showcase its portfolio of solution containers at the CleanMed 2017 Conference & Exposition on May 16-18 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

“We’re focused on supplying a marketplace with an increasing demand for safe products,” said Rick Williamson, Vice President of Pharmaceutical and Drug Delivery Marketing at B. Braun. “We’re here for the long haul and making the investments to ensure that the healthcare industry is well served with quality medical supplies so clinicians can provide healing environments for their patients.”

In the past five years, B. Braun has spent more than $500 million in developing innovative ways to offer products not made with PVC and DEHP. B. Braun actively supports policies calling for the industry-wide reduction of these chemicals and natural rubber latex in medical devices to raise awareness and encourage change.

More than four decades ago, B. Braun recognized the environmental and patient risks posed by products containing PVC and DEHP. As a result, B. Braun was the first IV fluids manufacturer to remove these toxic substances from many products, and remains the only supplier that offers a full-line of IV solution containers that are not made with PVC or DEHP.

“B. Braun is committed to finding alternative methods to manufacture safer products, such as our TITAN™ XL irrigation bags and E3® IV containers,” Williamson said.
