Under the three-year and multisource Premier contract, Microline will supply its high precision and laparoscopic surgical instruments, including the ReNew reusable hand piece and disposable tips.

Microline noted that it has been one of Premier’s strategic business partners since 2004 and the new deal is an extension to the firm’s 11-year relationship with the GPO.

As part of the three-year agreement with newly formed GPO Ascension, Microline will provide its reposable endomechanical instruments and MiFusion energy product line, including the MiSeal Reposable Thermal Ligating System, ENTceps forceps and TLS3 Thermal Ligating Shears.

Microline Surgical president and CEO Sharad Joshi said: "Serving as a strategic partner to these and other GPOs enables us to offer our high quality, cost effective and eco friendly solutions to a broad range of healthcare provider organizations across the US.

"It is validation of our technology performance, competitive pricing and outstanding customer service and support."
