Two companies with products in the urology market have signed new distribution agreements.

Two companies with products in the urology market have signed new distribution agreements.

Life-Tech (Stafford, TX) has signed a strategic distribution partnership agreement with SRS Medical (Billerica, MA) that enables Life-Tech to sell the CT3000 UroCuff system and accessories in North America.

The CT3000 UroCuff system performs a noninvasive analysis of male voiding pressure using an inflatable cuff. The test differentiates between bladder outlet obstruction and low bladder pressure.

"Along with SRS Medical, we believe the CT3000 UroCuff fills a need in the urologists’ diagnostic arsenal for evaluating male patients with LUTS without the risks and expense associated with a urodynamic pressure-flow study," said Life-Tech CEO Alfred Coats, MD.

In related news, Medline Industries, Inc. (Mundelein, IL), recently announced a strategic agreement with Teleflex Inc. (Limerick, PA) to distribute its Rüsch brand of specialty urologic products.

Products in the agreement include urinary drainage devices such as Foley and intermittent catheters, as well as specialty items for operative urology and endourology.

"Teleflex and Rüsch have a reputation for high-end, high-quality urological products, and this agreement enables us to expand our presence in the operating room and in other health care markets with these surgical and personal preference items," said Medline CEO Charlie Mills.
