ConceptoMed and medika Medizintechnik announce distribution agreement to sell the Luer-Jack® syringe in Germany

Press Release   •   May 23, 2016 13:00 BST

ConceptoMed today announces that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with medika Medizintechnik GmbH.

medika is a leading trading and service company for medical technology in Germany with more than 170 employees, supplying public and private clinics, hospital chains, outpatient medical centers, and private practices.

medika has gained the exclusive right for marketing, distribution, and sales of the Luer-Jack syringe in Germany.

This distribution agreement builds upon ConceptoMed’s commitment to pursuing global distribution, and to offering an innovative addition to the traditional medical disposable syringe worldwide. ConceptoMed has, so far, announced distribution agreements for 15 countries in Europe and the Middle East, including the Nordic countries and the U.K.

The innovative Luer-Jack syringe is unique through the very simple one-hand operated disconnection function. Based on the leverage effect, the ‘Click and Release’ feature performs faster, safer and more efficient one-hand disconnections from needles and any other medical luer connections, and thereby reduces the risk of needlestick injuries. Using only one hand safeguards aseptic technique and could become a vital part of the on-going struggle to reduce the occurrence of hospital-acquired-infections.

‘’Excellence Through Simplicity’ is ConceptoMed’s code, and we really look forward to making Luer-Jack available to a growing global healthcare world. Partnering with medika to supply the German healthcare market with great technology is an important step towards establishing Luer-Jack as a widely recognized technology’, says Christian Mide, M.D., CEO and founder of ConceptoMed.

‘We honestly believe Luer-Jack is only the start to finding ways of eliminating accidental human factors in maintaining aseptic care in the chain-of-events of a large number of critical care procedures’, says Mide.

Our relationship with ConceptoMed is a pivotal event for medika. One of our strengths is our understanding of the processes behind professional medical care and the knowledge of the importance of the right equipment at the right time. Luer-Jack will expand our portfolio significantly and help bringing innovation to patients and healthcare professionals in Germany’, says Stefan Weiß, CEO of medika.
