Z-Medica, a medical device company developing hemostatic agents, has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Fenno Medical Oy, a Finnish medical device distributor, for the distribution of QuikClot in Finland.

The agreement allows Fenno Medical the right to distribute Z-Medica’s QuikClot line of hemostatic agents to the hospital and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) markets.

QuikClot is a surgical gauze impregnated with kaolin, an inert mineral with no known contraindications, and can achieve hemostasis in severe bleeding situations in as little as three minutes.

Z-Medica chief executive officer Brian Herrman said that after extensive due diligence, we are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Fenno Medical Oy to distribute QuikClot products to hospitals and first responders in Finland.

“Fenno’s extensive contacts across a wide array of medical specialties and professional and skilled sales staff make it the perfect partner to introduce Finnish doctors and first responders to QuikClot and educate them on the product’s benefits,” Herrman said.
