Latest light-inhibiting amber bags

24th February 2015


Certain medications, antibiotics and compounded chemotherapy products need to be stored and transported in light inhibiting amber bags that restrict exposure of the product to light. Such light-sensitive solutions can become toxic and harmful for administration should inappropriate bagging measures be undertaken or sub-standard packaging utilised.

Helapet’s extensive range of open-ended and re-sealable amber bags fully comply with British Pharmacopoeia standards, restricting the amount of observed light passing through to less than 10% at any wavelength in the 290 to 450 nanometre (nm) range. Guaranteeing essential protection for light-sensitive products, Helapet amber bags are ideal for any healthcare application including IV bag covers, transfer of syringes and storage of chemotherapy medications.

Offered in an array of sizes, Helapet amber bags are supplied open-ended or re-sealable for preferred bagging activities. Open-ended amber bags can be heat-sealed for single trip transportation, providing secure tamper evidence for the user. Resealable amber bags offer easy closure and re-opening for multi-trip transport or storage of drugs.
