UK-based medical device manufacturer Aircraft Medical has entered into multiple distribution contracts for its McGrath MAC video laryngoscope in Asia Pacific.

The agreements cover nine of Asia’s key territories including China, India, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Hong Kong.

Aircraft Medical claims the McGrath MAC is a high-value, low cost portable video laryngoscope for the routine, general intubations market and has been designed to complement the original premium McGrath Series 5.

Aircraft Medical CEO Matt McGrath said Asia Pacific is a significant market for the McGRATH MAC and these distribution agreements mark an important step for the global commercialisation of the new product and are seeing strong demand from anaesthetists and partners worldwide.

"We expect to complete our Asia Pacific distribution network for the McGrath MAC this year and look forward to making new appointments in Japan and Australasia." McGrath said.
