At Nutricia, we work hard to ensure patients receive the best nutritional support. We’re committed to continuously improving our products for better usability, better safety, and to be better for the planet. That is why our enteral pack feed products have undergone a packaging transformation in to the OpTri bottle.

The OpTri bottle has been designed to make feeding easier for patients and carers, healthcare professionals and facilities. It’s user friendly, more hygienic and made using reclaimable and recyclable material.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the feed formula change with the introduction of the OpTri bottle?

No, only the packaging will change. The nutritional composition and ingredients of all formulas will remain the same as they are currently.

Please consult your healthcare professional to ensure suitability of feed delivery.

How should the volume marker on the side of the bottle be used?

The volume markings on the side of the bottle are to be used as a guide only.

Is the OpTri bottle fully compatible with all Nutricia medical devices and accessories?

Yes, the OpTri bottle cap contains an ENPlus cross port which is fully compatible with the Flocare ENPlus cross spikes on Nutricia giving sets.

Does the OpTri bottle fit on the Infinity Drip Stand?

The 500ml bottles and 1000ml Optri bottles are suitable for use with the Go Frame, provided a pack giving set is being used in preference to a bottle set.

Does the OpTri bottle fit in the Flocare Backpacks?

Adult Backpack
Nutricia’s Go Bag accommodates the Go Frame and either a 500mL bottle or 1000mL OpTri bottle. You would require the Go Frame when using the Go Bag as the Go Bag does not feature a hook inside to hang the feed.

Child Backpack
Baby bottles can be used in the Go Frame however they will require a bottle adapter so a Pack giving set can be used, rather than a bottle giving set. The Go Frame will not accommodate any giving sets with drip chambers.

Can the OpTri bottle be washed and re-used?

No. We do not recommend washing and re-use of the OpTri bottle.

Will the number of products per carton change with the OpTri bottle?

All 500mL tube feed products will change from 8 to 12 units per carton.

All 1000mL tube feed products will remain at 8 units per carton.

Is OpTri more expensive to purchase?

No, the price per individual unit will remain the same for both 500ml bottles and 1000mL OpTri bottle feeds.

The carton quantity for all 500mL OpTri bottle feeds will increase from 8 to 12 bottles and so the total carton price will increase.

 

Always follow the directions for use.
