What’s the difference between a medical plastic and a regular one? No, it’s not the diploma from a medical school. It’s transparency, resistance to chemicals and to fluctuations in temperature, stiffness, and if it is easy to process, all the better!

All these qualities belong to Luran® HD, HD standing for Health and Diagnosis. And what can this magic plastic be used for in the medical field? Well, specimen holders used in large-scale experiments, urine containers, vacuum bottles or nebulizer housings, just name them!
Besides, it can be sterilized with beta/gamma radiation and it is microwave-stable. What else? That’s all: unfortunately, George Clooney doest not advertise it.
