BK Medical has signed a new three-year product-line agreement with MedAssets Supply Chain. The agreement enables BK Medical’s urological and surgical ultrasound systems, related accessories, and supplies to be available to more than 1,700 MedAssets healthcare provider customers, who utilise the MedAssets group purchasing organisation (GPO) services.

Reportedly, MedAssets’ customers will have access to the new Flex Focus, the latest in the Focus family series of ultrasound scanners. BK Medical introduced the Flex Focus at the American Urological Association (AUA) annual meeting in April 2009.

The company claims that the new Flex Focus scanner is a sleek ultrasound system. Features of the Flex Focus include a 19-inch LCD high-definition monitor that houses the actual scanning unit, making it the mobile solution for sophisticated ultrasound needs.

The company also said that the Flex Focus can be easily docked in several different configurations and its 14-inch width means it can fit into virtually any clinical setting, even smaller, private practice offices. Its 19–inch LCD monitor is positioned vertically on the scanning unit, making it possible to view two large biplane images simultaneously without compromising ultrasound image size.

Michael Brock, president and CEO of BK Medical, said: “Our products feature the latest technical advantages in urology and surgery. This agreement with MedAssets makes it possible for us to reach more specialists for the good of their practices as well as their patients.”
