"It was essential for Sterion to find a manufacturing partner that was well versed in the FDA regulatory environment, and TriVirix's extensive regulatory compliance experience met our criteria. We also wanted a partner who had a customer-focused culture and could respond quickly to our needs. TriVirix committed to being that partner. We are excited about leveraging that expertise throughout the entire life-cycle of our product," said Kenneth Brimmer, Sterion's CEO.

"Our track record of superior quality performance and solid regulatory compliance gave Sterion confidence in our manufacturing capabilities. TriVirix frequently undergoes demanding audits to review our processes and all of our facilities are FDA registered, QSR compliant and ISO9001/ISO13485 certified," said Kathy Blum, TriVirix's interim CEO. "We pride ourselves on responding quickly to customer needs and look forward to establishing a solid partnership with Sterion."

Sterion Incorporated joins a growing list of medical and life science leaders -- including Medtronic, Smith & Nephew, Haemonetics and others -- who are already benefiting from TriVirix's customer-focused manufacturing model. The TriVirix model is based on the concept that customers want to work with one contract manufacturer throughout the product life-cycle, from initial design, development and prototyping to final manufacturing and post-production services.
