Our hospital/clinic is interested in a specific line of BARD products, but I don’t have the packaging to reference an item number for purchasing. How do I go about obtaining this information?
The BARD U.S. online product catalog is the perfect tool. Our customers can search by product category, division or by using a limited description to query the attributes necessary to place an order with BARD. Users will be able to see the item number’s full description, how it is packaged and which division sells it, along with a link to the divisional website for further information.

I have an idea for a product that BARD may be interested in. How do I submit my idea for consideration?
At BARD, our success stems from partnering with inspired individuals and organizations to bring innovative, new products to fruition. If you have an idea, fill out the BARD Product Submission Form with special attention to the general (non-confidential) description of your product. This will provide the information that BARD will need to determine if your submission could be an appropriate addition to our product line. For more information, visit our Idea Generation Process page.
Will BARD donate products for use in pro bono procedures that I perform for disadvantaged patients?
If you are a doctor engaged in a medical outreach mission and are seeking needed products from BARD or other companies, please contact the Manager of Medical Outreach Programs at AmeriCares for an application and guidelines.
