GE Healthcare has signed a long-term agreement with Biosense Webster to co-distribute their respective electrophysiology (EP) systems including GE's CardioLab EP recording systems and Biosense Webster's Carto 3 navigation system in the US.

GE Healthcare Interventional Electrophysiology general manager Jean-Michel Milles said the partnership with Biosense Webster allows the company to provide its US customers with a more comprehensive portfolio of EP products than any single company can provide.

"GE Healthcare is committed to becoming a total EP lab solution provider as we work to meet the clinical and workflow needs of electrophysiologists,” Milles added.

The companies will collaborate to improve the functional integration of their recording, imaging and 3D mapping systems.
