Interventional and radiology device contract manufacturer Biomerics announced today that it has launched an online store to sell medical balloons.
The new e-commerce platform will sell a range of off-the-shelf nylon, PET, and LDPE medical balloons, enabling engineers to develop and prototype next-generation catheters quickly, according to the Salt Lake City-based company.
The online store is launching with 35 standard balloons, but the company expects it to grow to more than 100 sizes quickly. Additional medical balloons and other engineered components such as extrusions will be added over time.
“We have been manufacturing first-in-class balloons for over 25 years,” said Chris Richardson, director of business development at Biomerics FMI, in a news release. “Biomerics currently manufactures over 20,000 balloons per week that are sold as components or further processed into finished medical devices. Launching an online store was the next logical next step for us to add value and convenience to customers.”
“Offering a fast-turn online store is something that customers have requested,” added Biomerics CEO Travis Sessions. “We are excited to develop an online store where we can quickly provide standard engineered components to engineers and accelerate the medical device development process. We look forward to expanding the site over time.”
