NEEDLE-FREE
MEDIA BAGS FROM SGL

SGL has recently added a needle-free injection site option for all bagged media products. This allows the transfer of media or samples simply using a syringe without the use of a hypodermic or other spike device. This solution eliminates the coring effect seen in conventional rubber stopper-based ports and improves operator safety by omitting sharp needles.
