Links Medical Products Receives Both FDA & EU Market Clearance for Advance Wound Care Products With Medical-Grade Manuka Honey


7/11/2012 8:04:21 AM

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Links Medical Products Inc. (LMP), a leader in the manufacture and marketing of innovative, caring products, announced they have received both FDA and European Union (EU) marketing clearance for its new MANUKA FillTM medical-grade Manuka honey wound dressing, and for MANUKA IGTM non-tacky, contact layer dressing.

"Being able to market our new medical-grade Manuka honey wound care products in the large and rapidly growing U.S. & European markets, and potentially in the other countries that recognize the FDA and the EU's CE certifications, is a significant milestone for our company," said Tom Buckley, CEO of Links Medical Products, Inc. "Based on research and our discussions with wound care specialists, we know these products will make an important contribution to both wound and burn care."

Only 100% Manuka honey (Leptospermum scoparium) from New Zealand is used to make LMP's wound care dressings. The pure Manuka honey is processed to medical-grade quality and terminally sterilized to eliminate bacteria, microorganisms and spores. The company's careful processing and sterilization methods preserve the unique biological activity of the Manuka honey.

MANUKA Fill sterile wound dressing consists of 100% pure medical-grade Manuka honey supplied in easy-to-use half ounce (0.5 oz.) and one and a half ounce (1.5 oz.) tubes for direct application to wounds and burns. MANUKA Fill can be applied either directly to the wound bed or to a primary dressing.

MANUKA IG is a new non-adherent contact layer dressing utilizing 100% pure medical-grade Manuka honey and is designed to meet the growing demand for an alternative approach to dressings for advanced wound and burn care management.

For more information about MANUKA Fill and MANUKA IG wound dressings, please visit www.linksmed.com or call 888.425.1149 or email info@linksmed.com.
