Merit Laureate® Hydrophilic Guide Wire Demonstration and QuadraSphere® 30-60 µm Microspheres Generate Interest at the 2013 CIO Meeting in Miami

Merit Medical’s booth was a frequently visited destination at the 2013 Symposium on Clinical Interventional Oncology (CIO), January 18-19 at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach.

The anatomical discovery model allowed attendees to see and feel firsthand the exceptional torque control and turn-by-turn responsiveness of the Merit Laureate Hydrophilic Guide Wire. Attendees also showed a lot of interest in QuadraSphere 30-60 µm Microspheres, Embosphere® Microspheres, Merit Maestro® Microcatheter, H2O Torq™ Torque Device, and the SeaDragon™ Guide Wire Torque Device.

Merit Medical supported a CME Session: ADVANCES IN DRUG-ELUTING EMBOLICS FOR CHEMOEMBOLIZATION presented by Dr. Katarina Malagari from the National University of Athens, in Athens, Greece.

Merit Medical had a great show and is looking forward to continuing to provide product innovations and accessories designed to enhance the practice of interventional radiology and oncology.

Smaller Packaging for Merit Medical’s ASAP® Aspiration Catheter

Merit Medical recognizes that busy cardiac catheterization and interventional radiology labs need to maximize shelf space for their inventory. The ASAP Aspiration Catheter’s new, smaller box will be available worldwide by the end of January 2013. The new 10” x 11” size box will take up less space, which is valuable to any healthcare organization, especially in clinical areas.

Inside the new packaging is a thermoform tray that securely contains the following components:

  • ASAP Aspiration Catheter
  • 21.5 cm Tubing Set With Stopcock
  • (2) 30 mL Merit VacLok® Vacuum Pressure Syringes
  • (2) 70 µm Filter Baskets
  • (1) 4 mL RXP® Rapid Exchange Prep Syringe
  • MicroStop™ Closed Waste Basin & Lid

The ASAP Aspiration Catheter is designed to remove soft emboli or thrombi from vessels in coronary and peripheral vasculature. We hope our customers like the new, smaller size packaging!
