Bag-in-Box for Pharmaceutical Liquids

Bag-in-Box packaging solutions fulfil the unique requirements of transporting non-invasive pharmaceutical liquids from 0.75L to 250 litres.

The hygienic single use packaging is suitable for inter-hospital transit as well as for appliance at laboratories and medical facilities. It provides easy dosage and connectivity with medical dispensing devices.
