Becton, Dickinson through its BD Medical business segment produces a wide array of medical technologies for health providers. BD Medical has four major business units:
- Diabetes Care makes syringes, pen needles and IV sets;
- Medication and Procedural Solutions offers needles, syringes and intravenous catheters for medication delivery – and much more;
- Medication Management Solutions makes intravenous medication safety and infusion therapy delivery systems;
- Pharmaceutical Systems creates refillable drug delivery systems for pharmaceutical companies.
Plans for a $24 billion merger with C. R. Bard, expected to close this year, should make BD even more of a major presence in the medical device industry.
