Merit chairman and chief executive officer Fred Lampropoulos said, "This FDA clearance will provide customers the opportunity to buy the single-loop ONE Snare(TM) or the triple-loop EN Snare(R), both of which have distinct clinical uses and benefits."

The company is planning to launch the ONE Snare system in January 2013.
