Quality means Patient Safety
At Bayer in Radiology we are dedicated to supporting the care you provide patients. Bayer Syringes for MEDRAD® Injection Systems are made in our North American facilities where we have supplied over 300 million syringes to 20,000 hospitals and imaging centers worldwide.
This video outlines Bayer’s syringe manufacturing systems and commitment to quality, performance and patient safety.
Patient safety is paramount. Every Bayer Syringe is ready to meet the specification of the power injection system for a safe patient procedure. Specific materials, packaging, manufacturing processes and sterilization methods were designed and developed to ensure the highest quality of each Bayer Syringe.
Besides patient safety, syringe quality also affects injector performance. Poor injector performance may reduce suite efficiency. Bayer Syringes also undergo testing in the most extreme environments, giving our customers assurance that their products arrive sterile and ready for use no matter where they are in the world.
“Making the conscious decision to use Bayer Disposables, both syringes and patient lines, is an easy one. Simply put, I know that our patients are receiving a very high-quality product and working with the Bayer team is great. Although there are other disposables out in the market, I see Bayer disposables as a part of the injector and not a standalone component. Whether it be service implications or software upgrades, over the life of a MEDRAD injector, I found that it remains important to think about the total cost of ownership when you move away from Bayer disposables, not just the initial savings. In my experience, when this occurs, any savings realized have been voided due to damage caused by contrast spillage. Because I trust Bayer for their injectors and service, I definitely extend that trust to their high quality disposables. It just makes good clinical and business sense.” – Mike Sharma, DI Director, Niagara Health System
