ConceptoMed today announces that it has entered into a distribution agreement with QRS Healthcare. The agreement gives QRS the exclusive right to marketing, sales and distribution of the Luer-Jack syringe in the Netherlands.
QRS is a Dutch wholesaler of medical devices supplying a wide range of medical equipment and consumables, including products in the field of hygiene in healthcare, to hospitals, private clinics, ambulance services, military and care institutions. QRS is a distributor of, amongst many other, Becton Dickinson syringes in the Netherlands.
This distribution agreement builds upon ConceptoMed’s commitment to pursuing global distribution, and to offering an addition to the traditional medical disposable syringe worldwide. So far, ConceptoMed has announced distribution agreements for 15 countries in Europe and the Middle East, including Germany, the Nordic countries and the United Kingdom.
Despite the increased healthcare focus on infection prevention, healthcare acquired blood-borne infections are still on the rise. The Luer-Jack system prevents accidental contaminating touch, where a large proportion of healthcare related contamination takes place. The Luer-Jack syringe is the only system with a one-handed disconnection capability. This integrated one-handed ’Click and Release’ functionality simply takes away an unnecessary potential for human interaction and performs faster, safer and more efficient disconnections from needles and any other medical attachments, and thereby also reduces the risk of needlestick injuries.
‘QRS Healthcare is the perfect marketing and distribution partner for Luer-Jack in the Dutch healthcare market. Their track record of introducing important medical innovations to healthcare professionals is outstanding - as is their existing selection of current collaborating suppliers - such as Becton, Dickinson & Co., Medline, Codonics, and others. We really look forward to contributing to the efforts for improved infection prevention and patient safety in the Netherlands’, said Christian Mide, M.D., CEO and founder of ConceptoMed.
‘Partnerships are of paramount importance to QRS. We offer a wide range of different products where hygiene and infection control are of significant importance. For every demand of our customers, we will provide a solution that meets regulations. Luer-Jack will expand our portfolio significantly and help bringing innovations to patients and healthcare professionals in the Netherlands’, said Mark van de Camp, CEO at QRS.
