A Novel Way to Transport Drug Vials!

Safely transporting small, easily-breakable vials is always a problem for the EMT. Carrying bags without individual sections for each vial may allow the delicate bottles to shift and bump into each other. Bags with individual sections are limited to an exact size and number of vials. Bags with elastic sections may cover the labels on the vials, and allow vials to slip out if jostled.

The ZYLE has been designed with these problems in mind, with flexible foam backing and clear-vinyl-covered pockets made to accommodate a variety of numbers and sizes of vials. While we may not be able to totally eliminate problems with vials, the Zyle can help.

Let us know if you need a different size to fit in your own first-in bag, as we offer custom sizes!

Colors:  Black/Burgundy, Red/Black
