Invasive procedures, such as angiography, carry risks. Hence, all areas concerning the procedures are given detailed attention to ensure the safety of the patients. This includes special care in the selection of seemingly unimportant medical supplies such as angiographic syringes.
Kemper Medical offers unbranded high pressure syringes for Nemoto injection systems. Nemoto Korindo is a Tokyo-based manufacturer and exporter of medical imaging equipment for CT and MRI, and recognized as a world leader in contrast injector technologies. Founded in 1939, the company has grown to be a leader in the field of medical injection systems. In 1972 it produced the first compression tank injector for cerebral blood vessels. At present, the company offers injectors for CT, MRI and angiography procedures that offer operators the capability of creating personalized protocols for patients in order to meet particular diagnostic goals. To ensure that their products can be safely integrated in MRI rooms, their injectors are made with non-ferrous materials.
Generic injector syringes and other unbranded medical devices may start to account for an increasing share of the US medical devices market as health care providers feel the pressure to bring down costs. As of 2013, the size of the medical device market is an estimated $125.4 billion, and is estimated to reach $133 billion by 2016. If a significant portion of these was made up of generics, it would greatly benefit both patients and medical professionals. Health care professionals would find their buying power greatly increased by more affordable generic medical devices, and this in turn would enable them to offer quality health care to their patients at cheaper costs.
