Merit Medical Announces Lineup of New Product Introductions

September 2, 2008 - Merit Medical Systems Inc., a manufacturer of disposable devices used primarily in cardiology and radiology procedures, today said five new products are scheduled to be introduced over the next few months.

The Slip-Not, a suture retention device, is scheduled to be introduced in the next two weeks. It is a patented device used for the retention of purse-string sutures following fistulagrams or other fistula procedures. A surgical version is currently under development for introduction in mid-2009.

The Prelude Short Sheath replaces a previously purchased product, which Merit has upgraded with new features and at lower cost. The product is primarily used as the main access device for the treatment of dialysis grafts. The product may also be used in conjunction with the Slip-Not. It is scheduled to be released in mid-September.

The M.A.K.-NV, an introducer set used primarily in drainage procedures is scheduled to be introduced in mid-September. The device will complement Merit’s Resolve drainage catheters.

The GrandStand, a patented addition to Merit’s safety product line, is designed to help facilitate convenience and safety during interventional and diagnostic procedures. The GrandStand is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2008.

The Merit HD8 hemostasis valve is designed for use during interventional procedures that utilize guiding catheters. Its patented double seal ensures little or no blood loss, and it can be operated with one hand, the company said. The Merit HD8 is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2008.
