Z-Medica Signs Distribution Agreement with Nihon-Kohden

September 1, 2010 - Z-Medica Corp., announced that it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Nihon-Kohden, Japan's manufacturer, developer and distributor of medical electronic equipment. The agreement allows Nihon-Kohden the exclusive right to distribute Z-Medica’s QuikClot line of hemostatic agents to hospital, military and law enforcement markets throughout Japan.

QuikClot is a surgical gauze impregnated with kaolin, an inert material with no known contraindications, and can achieve hemostasis in severe bleeding situations in as little as three minutes. QuikClot is widely used throughout several clinical specialties, including cardiology, interventional radiology, critical care, dermatology, emergency medicine, orthopedics and OB/Gyn.

After months of testing against 12 other hemostatic products in the marketplace, the military version of the kaolin gauze (“Combat Gauze”) was chosen as the exclusive product for use by all US Military Forces in 2008. It continues to be the exclusive product used by all USA military forces for first line treatment of bleeding hemorrhage.

The companies have been working together since early 2009 to obtain regulatory approval. Such approval for the sale of Z-Medica’s full line of QuikClot hemostatic gauze products was approved by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in March 2010.
