Merit Medical Announces Year-End Developments

December 30, 2008 - Merit Medical Systems Inc., a manufacturer of disposable devices used in cardiology and radiology procedures, today announced four developments regarding products and approvals.

The company said it has acquired the rights for a radial artery compression device for an undisclosed amount. The device is used to maintain a given pressure following a cardiac procedure, which allows early ambulation.

Merit also acquired a device used for the removal of cuffed catheters, such as hemodialysis catheters, and other products, such as ports. The product has patents pending FDA 510(k) clearance and is sold as a stand-alone product as well as part of a kit. The company did not disclose the purchase price.

Merit also said it received FDA 510(k) for its Miser contrast management system. The product has patents pending and will be released during the first quarter of 2009.

The company also received ISO 13485 certification of its facility in Richmond, VA from BSI, Merit's European Notified Body.
