NOTTINGHAM, England - (November 10, 2016) - Luxfer Gas Cylinders will launch its expanded healthcare range for Europe-including several new products-at the Medica World Forum for Medicine and International Trade Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, November 14-17.
The launch builds on the announcement earlier this year of a partnership with Precision Medical, Inc., a leading respiratory device manufacturer, to supply new, lightweight three-litre and five-litre Luxfer portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) into Europe.
Luxfer will also introduce its new AOS™ advanced oxygen system, a lightweight ambulatory oxygen device featuring an integrated valve and patented SmartFlow™ technology. The device, which incorporates Luxfer's exclusive 300-bar L7X® composite medical cylinders, received full CE certification in November.
Zane Powers, healthcare marketing manager for Luxfer Gas Cylinders, Europe, said: "We've been working very closely with our customers, patients and healthcare professionals over the past several years to develop our new healthcare portfolio, which provides homecare companies a wide range of new oxygen-delivery systems for the diverse needs of healthcare providers and patients. We're really pleased to have secured the CE mark on our new AOS™ integrated ambulatory oxygen device, and we're excited to showcase this new product at Medica. In addition, to present our new line of POCs, we'll be using a new, interactive virtual world that incorporates augmented-reality technology."
