"The best way to predict the future is to create it."

2011 marks the 24th straight year that Merit Medical Systems, Inc. has expanded its product offering with a pipeline full of new products and line extensions to existing products. This year we launched the ASAP® aspiration catheter in the United States (formerly only available in Europe), TRAM™ and TRAM-P™ manifold with integral transducer, the One-Step™ TAPS (Thoracentesis and Paracentesis Set), the Embosphere® microspheres with syringes made of cyclo olefin polymer (cop), and the Merit Mini Access Kits Non-Vascular (MAK-NV™) with chiba needle. The company’s product development pipeline for 2012 is filled with more than a dozen new opportunities that will help define the future of the company. Peter Drucker, who is recognized globally as the father of modern management, once said “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” We look forward to 2012 and beyond; the future looks positive with many more new products in the development pipeline.
