Z-Medica Corp.’s blood clotting products are now available in the Netherlands.
The Wallingford, Conn.-based medical device maker signed a distribution deal with Utrecht-based Stöpler Instrumenten & Apparaten B.V for its QuikClot line of hemostatic agents.
The new agreement is the company’s second deal this month and its fourth international deal. Z-Medica signed an exclusive deal with Romed for sales and distribution of its blood clotting products in Belgium a week ago. Z-Medica also signed an exclusive distribution deal with the Helsinki, Finland-based medical product distributor Fenno Medical Oy in September and another with Tokyo, Japan-based Nihon-Kohden in August.
Combat gauze, a QuikClot-impregnated wound dressing, is the only product used by all U.S. military forces for treating hemorrhages, according to the company. It recieved CE Mark approval for European sales and marketing in November 2009.
