Toronto, Ontario | November 17, 2022 08:01 AM Eastern Standard Time
Toronto, Ontario – The Newswire – November 17, 2022 - Ventripoint Diagnostics Ltd. ("Ventripoint" or the "Company"), (TSXV:VPT); (OTC:VPTDF) who’s mission is to improve cardiac diagnostic for everyone, everywhere and especially for children, is pleased to announce that it has appointed MediTek Lifesciences LLC. (Meditek) as a distributor for the USA-California market. MediTek distributes products specific to cardiology research and treatment centers throughout the State of California, USA.
“It is appropriate that the first distributor in the USA is for California, the most populous state in the USA, which is a strategic starting point for the VMS+ family of products to address the heart healthcare needs of the approximately 39 million residents in the state,” commented Dr. George Adams, Ventripoint’s CEO.
California’s economy is poised to be the 4th largest in the world (https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2022-10-24/california-poised-to-overtake-germany-as-world-s-no-4-economy), California has a number of leading cardiac centers and is an excellent base to begin to advance cardiac diagnostics in the USA.
MediTek has multiple sales representatives with a combined experience of over 45 years in the cardiology sector within the Californian market and understand how the VMS+ meets doctors’ needs by providing reliable echocardiography measurements. The representatives have completed training and their initial focus will be the clinicians and cardiologists who treat patients with congenital heart disease, which is a life-long condition where accurate regular assessments of right-heart function are critical to the planning and monitoring of appropriate care. With an established customer base of more than 100 clinical sites, MediTek will grow Ventripoint’s awareness within the California market and further expand its customer base.
