Vonco Products Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Novel Closed-Loop Enteral Feeding Solution – EnteraLoc™ Flow

Whether in the hospital or the home, the EnteraLoc Flow feeding solution is designed to support or improve the enteral patient’s lifestyle.

TREVOR, WI, September 8, 2021 – Vonco Products LLC, an industry-leading contract manufacturer of liquid-tight medical fluid bags and devices, biohazard transport, and infection prevention PPEs and device covers, today announced that the patented EnteraLoc™ Flow direct-connect enteral nutritional delivery system was granted 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
