St. Charles, IL, September 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- MediPurpose(r), a master distributor and manufacturer of medical devices, today announced MED Alliance Group, Inc. as its Midwestern U.S. regional distributor for its new babyLance(r) infant heel incision device.
MED Alliance Group will distribute babyLance in 14 states throughout the Midwestern United States.
They will join two other exclusive regional distributors. Last month, MediPurpose announced that Kentec Medical of Irvine, California will distribute babyLance heelsticks in 15 states throughout the Western United States, and that KOL Bio-Medical Instruments of Chantilly, Virginia will distribute babyLance in 22 states Eastern United States.
Introduced last month, the new babyLance infant heel incision device is a fully redesigned version of MediPurpose's original safe, easy and effective heelstick device.
Used by neonatal caregivers to collect blood samples from infants, the new babyLance features an ergonomic design to provide a secure and stable grip. Combined with a redesigned trigger mechanism, the device is easy to activate, helping to deliver a consistent incision without touching the baby's tender nerve fibers. The product is now available for sale and distribution through MediPurpose's new partners.
MED Alliance Group will be distributing both versions of the babyLance heelstick device:
* The babyLance(r) BLN (Newborn), which delivers an incision depth of 1.00 mm.
* The babyLance(r) BLP (Preemie), which delivers an incision depth of 0.85 mm.
"We are pleased to announce the MED Alliance Group as our exclusive Midwestern regional distributor," said MediPurpose Executive Vice President and CCO Michael Riddle. "Their neonatal focus and excellent reputation makes them the perfect choice to represent babyLance in this region. Combined with Kentec and KOL Bio-Medical, we believe we have the strongest possible team selling our product nationwide."
