Millar said today that it is discontinuing its exclusive North American distribution agreement with CD Leycom, maker of the clinical Inca pressure-volume (PV) loop system.
Officials at Houston-based Millar – a pressure sensors and medical device contract manufacturing company – plan to focus more on the company’s OEM division, which integrates pressure sensors based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) into medical devices.
The CD Leycom Inca PV system is mostly used in clinical research to better understand cardiovascular function; the system analyzes over 50 physiological parameters. Millar officials said in a news release that the decision to exit the distribution agreement was difficult. They said: “The company has the utmost confidence in the technology and that CD Leycom will continue to lead the way in integrating PV loops into routine procedures at Cardiovascular Centers of Excellence.”
Millar originally inked the districution agreement with CD Leycom five years ago.
Millar’s national sales manager Patrick Sullivan is leaving to become CD Leycom’s North American sales director.
