Bactiguard expands in Latin America


The company has signed a distribution agreement with Promedon allowing the company to sell Bactiguard’s complete portfolio of medical devices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico.

Under the agreement, Promedon will be marketing and selling Bactiguard’s complete portfolio for infection control, including urinary, intravenous and respiratory catheters in the four countries. According to Bactiguard, the company has already secured regulatory approvals for key parts of its product portfolio in Brazil, Chile and Mexico. Sales can start within the next few months in these three markets. Approvals for Argentina are still pending, but the application process has been initiated.

Johan Rugfelt, CEO of Bactiguard: “We are very proud and excited about the partnership with Promedon, as we are expanding our market presence significantly by entering a partnership with a leading innovator and distributor in the largest Latin American markets. Together we will improve patient safety, save lives and money for the healthcare system.”
