History of Innovation

Baxter's heritage is built on 80 years of innovation in healthcare, including a long list of “firsts.” From the first commercially manufactured intravenous (IV) solutions, to the first peritoneal dialysis (PD) solutions and delivery systems, to the first recombinant (biotechnology-derived) Factor VIII to treat hemophilia, to the first cell culture-derived pandemic flu vaccine, Baxter continues to make history with life-saving products and therapies.
