The three-year agreement went into effect on 1 October 2010 and stands to reinforce the strength of the relationship B Braun has built with Premier over the years.

This is B Braun’s third contract renewal, amounting to a total of 6 years of partnership.

Introcan Safety IV Catheter – the product in which this contract is focused – is designed with a passive safety feature that automatically activates to help minimize accidental needle-stick injuries, B Braun said.

B Braun Medical Vascular Access and IV Systems vice president Tom Sutton said that he will look forward to continue their partnership with Premier in an effort to improve patient care and safety within the medical device industry and they attribute this win to the strength of their proven, truly passive safety technology.
