syringe get's some specific PR next week. BD's partner MEDC is being unfairly squeezed following the CBS fiasco and is tied to BD's advanced safety efforts with a very short leash on this one. As played on CBS, BD has no interest in developing any safety products like or as good as RTI's. That I believe claim is false and misleading.
And what of ABT's relationship with RTI - not a word in the "report"? Mr. Wallace probably could not fully fact find his way out of a paper bag, but after all it's just sensationalism and ratings for a "news" guy.
LOL, but why let facts get in the way of a canned storyline which intends to harm a series of separate legal business relationships like the license agreements of third parties in a calculated manner?
Gene's a complete idiot. He wouldn't know a worthy winner if it came up and kissed him on the a**.
BD owns the predominant market share in each of its market segments, and the best Gene can do is whine about conspiracies between GPO's, distributors and BD. He's probably bankrupt financially by now...his ideas were bankrupt years ago.
I recall the Hemoguard(TM) Closure for Vacutainer Blood Collection Tubes won in 1989/90. BDX probably has sold 20 Billion of those since release (kind of like McDonald's) which isn't shabby. I would not be suprised if BDX owns 85% world market share in this product area. Does this rate in your view as a worthy winner?
and more including reference to
Where is that BD next generation "passive' IV cath anyway? Q2? Q3? Q4? or 2002?
Any of you remember what year BD won a MDEA award?
"Winners Announced in the 2001 Medical Design Excellence Awards Competition"
3/9/01 BusinessWire release:
JNJ/ACUVANCE of course licenses BPLX's PuncturGuard tech.
Now where is BD's passive IV cath(with or without awards)?
Where's BD's true "passive" IV cath?
Delay, delay and delay...WHY?
Are more HCW being stuck with BD's "safety" devices?
Another question:Is there some kind of monopoly to keep these "safety" devices in healthcare facilities when there are "safer" devices available?
More on ACUVANCE==>
JNJ's Ethicon-Endo Vasc Access web site has put up two pages featuring ACUVANCE ProtectIV.
"SAFETY COULDN�T BE EASIER
WITH THE SELF-BLUNTING NEEDLE"
"Automatic, passive needlestick protection"
Guess there's no end to the supply of doughnuts for the world's leader. What? Can't hear you???
Until you guys pull your head out of the sand in Franklin Lakes, ABT isn't going away. How long do you think you can retain market share with less desirable safety products? Now 14 months of limping to market (or should that be sitting on a shelf?) So much for good intentions or a duty to perform in a business like manner under the license agreement. Why is it that Shaw could get his retractable up and out to market faster than the world's leader with weaker financials until ABT decided to mass manufacture it???? Kinda makes this poster wonder HOW serious BD is. Seems like bigtime B.S.
A parade of dogs and ponies, but no sign of retractables.
You would think that someone as intelligent as you would have more to say than calling me a moron. I hope you utilize one of the priceless syringes that BDX is selling as "safe". Maybe then you will see the light. Go climb under a rock you say? Sorry, I have no intentions of visiting your playground.
