RyMed Technologies Receives CE Mark, ISO and Canada Certification
FRANKLIN, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RyMed Technologies today announced it has received three major certifications that will allow the company to substantially expand its IV safety business worldwide.
RyMed has received a CE Mark, Health Canada validation for its quality management systems, and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification. The trio of highly prized certificates cover the quality assurance systems for manufacture of all the company’s intravenous needleless connectors, stopcocks and related intravenous extension and administration sets.
RyMed’s IV products for central venous (CVC) and peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) address a substantial market worldwide. Analyst estimates place the size of the global market for CVCs at more than $582 million annually. CVCs and PICCs in the U.S. and many other countries typically require a needleless IV connector such as RyMed’s flagship InVision-Plus®.
“The awarding of these three major certifications validates our quality management programs and opens up many more international markets for us, said Dana Wm. Ryan, President, CEO and Chairman of the Board of RyMed Technologies. “This is a huge opportunity for our zero fluid displacement technology, and a milestone on the path to much broader global adoption of our products.”
