Medipak’s UVLI-bags™ have been used for protection and blinding in clinical drug trials by 5 of the 6 largest Pharmaceutical Companies and by numerous major Contract Research Organizations.
The information below can help to clarify options on Medipak’s standard price list, and offers custom options not on our standard price list.
Please call Medipak at 800-336-9848 in advance of your Clinical Drug Trials to discuss your needs and requirements, to request samples, to discuss custom sizes or custom quantities, and to let us know about larger quantities you may require. We can help clarify which options best match your needs.
Protection From Light: All UVLI-bags™ exceed USP standards. The amber and green colors absorb 92% to 98% of light in the UV range. The dark brown and black colors absorb 99.9% of light in the UV range. (Please note that the lighter colors allow the nurse to read a label or check the level of an IV fluid through the UVLI-Bag™. The darker colors do not.)
Masking Drug Identity: Medipak has four colors of film and bags, including a dark brown color not listed in our standard price sheet. The amber and green colors are transparent, but will mask many differences in IV fluid color. The dark brown and black colors are opaque, to completely blind the medication.
Covering The IV Lines: Some Pharmaceutical Companies and Clinical Research Organizations cover the IV lines during clinical investigations to protect and blind the medication. We offer three tubing options:
- The standard roll of 2.5” wide tubing used to cover IV lines is 2500 feet long. This can be cut to the desired length by the nurse.
- We also offer a 1250′ and a 300’ roll so you can send smaller rolls to each site.
- We now offer 10 strips of tubing in 6-foot lengths. This is the most convenient alternative for nurses.
Nursing Convenience: The standard UVLI-bags™ have a seal completely across one end of the bag. The slit-top UVLI-bags™ have a 2.5” gap in the middle of the seal. This gap makes it easier to put our IV covers on an IV hook, without poking or cutting a hole in them.
Please contact us for a custom quote on large quantities.
Meeting Your Deadlines: Medipak stocks the full line of UVLI-bags™ on our standard product list. If you need large quantities of our standard products, or if you need special order products not listed on the price list, please allow an extra one to six weeks. However, we will work to deliver what you need, when you need it, where you need it.
