IV and pharmacological applications
The use of flexible bags for IV applications offers signiﬁcant advantages over the traditional glass bottles and blown plastic containers. One of the most important aspects is the collapsibility of a flexible bag, making air vents redundant. Other beneﬁts include weight and volume reduction and high transparency. Today the decisive factors in IV applications are quality, reliability and cost. RENOLIT SOLMED sets the standard in all aspects.
RENOLIT SOLMED Medipak, Mediflex and Infuflex are the standard for the packaging of sterile IV and pharmacological solutions. These PVC and polyoleﬁn (PP) based tubular and double wound flat ﬁlms have proven to be the most reliable and cost effective material for IV bags.
High frequency welding of the PVC based RENOLIT SOLMED Medipak offers a reduced risk of pinholes during the production of bags. PVC Medipak is available in DEHP, TEHTM, DINCH or other plasticized formulations.
RENOLIT MEDICAL offers a complete system for the manufacture of reliable and high quality IV bags, both in PVC and in polyoleﬁn materials:
- RENOLIT SOLMED Medipak (PVC) and Mediflex (PP) tubular ﬁlm; Infuflex (PP) double wound flat film
- RENOLIT SOLMED Medituub (PVC) and Tubeflex (PP)
- RENOLIT SOLMED Medigranuul (PVC) and Granuflex (PP) injection molding compounds for port manufacturing
The storage of drugs, active ingredients or other pharmacological solutions is supported by a wide range of ﬁlm and tubing compositions.
The polyoleﬁn based RENOLIT SOLMED Mediflex and Infuflex films can be used on the highly efﬁcient fully automated heat seal machines that are available today. For polyoleﬁn IV systems the unique RENOLIT SOLMED Tubeflex types can be combined with PP based RENOLIT SOLMED Granuflex injection molded ports, with polycarbonate ports and even with PVC ports.
For IV administration sets, RENOLIT SOLMED Medituub is the material of choice. Main features are the superior non-kinking properties, excellent transparency and suitable for steam, ETO and gamma sterilization. For critical applications, the coextruded RENOLIT SOLMED Tubeflex 3-layer PVC/PE tubing avoids drug ab-/adsorption to the tubing wall.
