+PLUSPAK™ (Polymer Bottle)
A landmark design doesn’t just happen. At GE Healthcare, we think carefully about every detail of our products. The +PLUSPAK polymer bottle was designed to improve workplace safety and efficiency.
+PLUSPAK packaging reduces risk of sharps injuries and enhances workplace safety
Injuries associated with glass bottles make up an estimated 16% of sharps injuries in healthcare settings. Other sharp items, such as the edges of metal bottle seals, cause an additional 15% of injuries.1
Our pharmaceutical-grade polymer bottle won’t shatter when dropped, reducing the risk of injury from broken glass.
GE Healthcare’s easy-to-open, metal-free, twist-off polypropylene cap avoids cuts from metal crimps. Our packaging was designed to be safer than glass.
Compared to glass, +PLUSPAK packaging was designed to be safer.
