Merit Medical recevives regulatory approvals for its inflation device

Merit Medical announced that it has received multiple regulatory approvals from various regulatory bodies. The basixTOUCH, Merit's most advanced high-pressure inflation device, has received 510k clearance from the FDA. The "Touch," which attained the CE mark early in the second quarter of 2013, has had substantial success in the first two months of its European release. The "Touch" eliminates the need to use multiple inflation devices in some advanced interventional cases because of its high pressure range. The company also received initial acceptance of a number of claims from its U.S. patent application.
