Over the many years that Renacidin has been on the market we have received numerous requests to bring to market a ready-to-use, single-dose unit. The new bottle will enable the user to dispense the product directly into a catheter without having to use a separate syringe. We believe that this new single-dose unit will make the product much easier for both medical professionals and caregivers to use, and are very pleased to finally be able to offer this easier-to-use product to the thousands of patients who depend on it."
