Proper clinical nutrition can make all the difference to a patient who needs to regain and maintain their health. For more than 70 years, we've been assisting healthcare providers in treating patients' diverse nutrient needs, introducing one of the first liquid proteins in the form of amino acids. Today, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of products for acute and chronic patients who are unable to take adequate oral or enteral nutrition, or require supplemental nutrition.

Our global product portfolio includes ready-to-use premix parenteral nutrition (PN) in several nutritionally balanced formulations containing amino acids (proteins), glucose (carbohydrates), intravenous fat emulsions (lipids), and electrolytes, as well as vitamins and trace elements. When patients have more complex, individualised nutritional needs, we also provide pharmacy workflow management, labelling and compounding technology to support their unique needs. This combination helps ensure you have options to appropriately prescribe nutritionally balanced PN therapy to meet your patients' needs.

Advancing Global Nutritional Care

Access

We provide a cohesive portfolio of innovative and accessible products and services that are designed for patients across the continuum of care. This ranges from preterm newborns to acutely ill patients and the chronically ill, and across healthcare settings, including the hospital, the ICU, and in the home.

Quality

Our product portfolio contains many of the essential ingredients necessary to create well-balanced formulations of a clinical nutrition regimen: protein, carbohydrates, lipids, electrolytes, trace elements and vitamins.

 

Safety

Research shows ready-to-use solutions may reduce the potential risk of medication errors and associated infections1. With our pharmacy technology the preparation process for bespoke prescriptions can be simplified.
