IV Room Batch Bags

Wondering if others allow the use of batch bags in their compounding suites. We have a request from our technicians to use a batch bag for a specific compound to make compounding easier/safer. The bag would be made, the syringes drawn up from it, the whole process checked, and then any remaining medication would be discarded. I know there are some concerns with batch bags so I was juts curious what others are doing. Thanks!
