Sysmex America, Inc., a leading provider of automated diagnostic testing equipment and information systems technology, today announced that it has signed a non-exclusive distributor agreement with Medline Industries, Inc. in Mundelein, Ill., the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies in the United States.
Under the terms of the agreement, Medline will market, distribute and sell Sysmex America hematology analyzers to office-based healthcare practitioners in the 48 contiguous United States.
“Many physician offices lack basic, affordable laboratory analyzers that can help them evaluate patient blood test results on-site and in real-time. This agreement expands Sysmex’s existing reach into the physician office-based laboratory (POL) market, and we’re very much looking forward to working with Medline,” said Andy Hay, vice president, sales and special projects, Sysmex America, Inc.
With a growing network of more than 65 manufacturing and distribution centers worldwide, Medline strives to help customers achieve clinical and financial success by offering high quality medical supplies and clinical solutions. “Medline, like Sysmex, is known for its customer focus and is committed to offering innovative products that help healthcare organizations perform at their very best. This agreement offers Medline and our physician office customers access to a recognized market leader of in-office hematology solutions.” said Bob Ortiz, senior vice president, physician office, Medline.
