Medical Plastics

Baxter revolutionized blood collection decades ago when it introduced the first flexible plastic blood-collection container, paving the way for the first flexible plastic IV solution container for intravenous (IV) therapy, which became and continues to be the industry standard.  Soon to follow were the MINI-BAG container systems for IV drugs, and the flexible plastic containers used in peritoneal dialysis, the first portable dialysis therapy.  Today, medical plastics are integral to many Baxter product lines.  FLEXBUMIN, the first and only albumin packaged in a flexible plastic container, is the result of combining Baxter's expertise in medical plastics with its expertise in biologics to create a truly unique product in the marketplace.
