SAN DIEGO, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- San Diego Regional Minority Supplier Development Council has renewed the certification that Ivera Medical Corporation has met the stringent requirements for a minority-owned business, as defined by the National Minority Supplier Development Council certification guidelines.
Bob Rogers, Ivera Medical CEO said, "Our MBE certification is important. It helps Ivera open doors with healthcare providers and purchasing organizations who seek diversity and appreciate the competitive value an MBE can bring to their supply contracting."
Ivera Medical manufactures and sells the Curos® Port Protector, a passive disinfection cap which disinfects and then guards luer activated swabbable valves against contamination between venous accesses to kill the organisms associated with catheter-related bloodstream infections. The vibrant green cap assures high visibility compliance with hospital infection control protocols while its ingenious design minimizes potential alcohol spillage and packaging waste. Effective use requires only that caregivers peel off a foil seal and twist the cap onto any needleless connector. Inside the cap, a 70% IPA (isopropyl alcohol) saturated sponge continually bathes the port for effective, consistent and reliable disinfection.
