Enteral consumables market leader prepared for new ISO at Arab Health

GBUK Ltd, one of the UK’s market leaders in enteral consumables, will be showcasing its range of products that have been prepared for the new Enteral ISO directive, at Arab Health 2015.

GBUK Ltd will head to Dubai for Arab Health 2015 where they will be located at Stand Z1G57 in the Za’beel Hall, and will exhibit its products including enteral syringes, nasogastric tubes and dilators – all available with the new connector.

“GBUK has played a key role on an international planning committee to help raise awareness of the new directive, working with healthcare professionals and patient organisations from across the globe. We’re now looking to bring that expertise to customers, clinicians and patients across the Middle East.”

“At Arab Health we are looking to meet new distributors and expand our range in to a growing market which demands the highest quality from its medical products.”
