Press Release   •   May 10, 2016 06:16 BST

ConceptoMed today announce that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Mediplast AB.

Mediplast is a leading Nordic supplier of medical technical equipment and medical disposable products based in Sweden. Mediplast market and sell products from their own branded assortment of proprietary products combined with models from a select body of renowned suppliers.

Mediplast have gained exclusive right for the marketing, distribution and sale of the Luer-Jack syringe in Denmark, Finland and Sweden.

This distribution agreement builds upon ConceptoMed’s commitment to pursuing global distribution, and to offer an innovative addition to the traditional medical disposable syringe worldwide. ConceptoMed has, so far, announced distribution agreements for 14 countries in Europe and the Middle East, including 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.

Humans touch things. That’s the core contaminating problem related to blood borne hospital acquired infections and needlestick injuries. The greatness of Luer-Jack lies in its simplicity; large scale patient safety issues can be addressed with low-cost technology to enhance safety for both patients and healthcare workers’, says Christian Mide, M.D., CEO and founder of ConceptoMed.
