West Pharmaceutical Services has recently announced FDA 510(k) clearance and launch of its Vial2Bag Advanced 20mm Admixture Device.

The Vial2Bag Advanced 20mm Admixture Device enables the reconstitution and transfer of a drug between a vial and an IV bag. The innovative needle-free and easy-to-use device is ideal for immediate use and can optimize pharmacy clean room time, while assisting in standardizing admixture systems to maximize the efficiency of point-of-care nursing.

Key features of the Vial2Bag Advanced™ 20mm Admixture Device can be an effective solution for meeting USP <797> compounding requirements.

The device has both a dual channel design to provide dedicated fluid pathways into and out of the IV bag and an enhanced vial spike design that improves the connection to the drug vial. In addition, the device is needle-free, which meets OSHA and NAPPSI sharps prevention guidance. Furthermore, the device provides a simple solution for just-in-time IV medication preparation, improving timeliness at point of care.

The device even offers universal compatibility with all manufacturers' IV bags up to 250mL and is suitable for use with liquid and powder medications with standard 20mm closure vials, leading to reduced drug and IV fluid waste.
