Patients that are unable to feed themselves are nourished by injecting the appropiate nutrients direct to the blood stream. This is called Total Parenteral Nutrition, TPN. The diet for each patient is prescribed for that individual and varies from person to person. Obviously each prescription has to be prepared with great care and in sterile conditions.
Healing Era are providing a regional service to prepare TPN from a new base in Riyadh. STC provided the design for the facility. A package of information for a submission by Healing Era to the Saudi Food & Drug Administration was prepared. MRC, a UK company with manufacturing facilities in Dubai, provided the cleanroom and the mechanical systems.
