Macro IV set & Micro IV set

Macro IV set& Micro IV set

The macro drip set, with a macrodrip factor of 10 to 20 gtt/mL, is for rapid infusion of large volumes.

Microdrip IV tubing is used to administer potent medications with extreme precision, especially for patients like newborns and children who are very sensitive to medication doses. The tubing typically allows for around 60 drops per milliliter (gtt/mL).

As a manufacturer, we have 30 years of professional production experience in China. Know more about us. The way to distinguish these two IV sets is by observing the drip device inside the drip chamber. From the pictures, you’ll see the differences.

We mainly use primary packing, which is a small PE bag or paper pouch.

The outer carton is the final packing, holding 500 or 720 pcs. The carton size can be customized according to the client’s requirements. However, we would suggest not using too big a size. Prior to being introduced to the market, all completed infusion sets undergo a meticulous sterilization process using ethylene oxide (EO). Ethylene oxide sterilization is a widely employed method in the medical industry due to its effectiveness in eliminating microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and spores, without compromising the integrity of sensitive medical equipment.
