Abstract (en)

The thread of the infusion bag by its free end lying on one side of the tag(5) is drawn in a loop(3f) through the tag. The loop from the other side is laid in two slots(5a) in the edge region of the tag in such a way that its closed portion lies on one side of the tag, whereby the looping is tightened by pulling on the thread(3). Independent claims are included for a tag for an infusion bag, and for a procedure for the fastening of a tag on the free end of a thread drawn through it.
