BPA-free Medical Components for Enteral and Parenteral Applications
A. Hopf GmbH Kunststoffverarbeitung
Already at COMPAMED 2010 A. Hopf GmbH has presented as innovator BPA-free Stopcocks with high lipid resistance. This is especially important, as lipids may lead parts of softeners out of the plastics into the human body. The European Commision with its Directive 2011/8/EU has then confirmed a BPA-free future of baby bottles, that may also soon relate to medical components that are mostly produced in PC (that contains BPA). Not only Stopcocks, but also other components in the enteral and parenteral field, like Y-connectors BPA-free are presented at Compamed 2011 in Hall 8 a / Booth K14.
