Answers to FAQs

1. Where do I find my BD Catalog Number and BD Lot Number on the product label?

The BD Catalog Number and BD Lot Number can be found on the carton and shelf pack labels.
The BD Catalog Number is often designated as the "REF" number. The BD Lot Number is often displayed in association with the word "LOT" inside a rectangle.

In some instances, BD Catalog Numbers are referred to as "Reorder Number", "Reorder No:", "CAT", etc. BD Lot Numbers are referred to by "Lot No:", "Lot:", etc.

The Batch Number printed on the Quality Certificate is synonymous with the Lot Number shown on the product label.

5. What is the difference between MSDS & SDS?

BD "Material Safety Data Sheets" (MSDSs) will also be referred to as "Safety Data Sheets" (SDSs) to align with Global Harmonization Standards (GHS) and the newly approved (May 28, 2010) American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Standard Z400.1/Z129.1-2010, Hazardous Workplace Chemicals - Hazard Evaluation and Safety Data Sheet and Precautionary Labeling Preparation. Therefore, newer documents will have the nomenclature SDS and older documents will retain the MSDS reference.
