UroViu Corp Secures Medical Equipment ECAT Contract for VA DoD Purchasing
DoD and VA Healthcare Facilities Can Now Purchase UroViu's Single-Use Endoscopy Products
LOS ALTOS, Calif., October 13, 2022 (Newswire.com) - UroViu Corp, a company that develops and commercializes highly portable single-use endoscopy platforms, announced today that it has been added to the US Defense Logistics Agency's Medical Equipment ECAT. With a contract secured through Fidelis Sustainability Distribution, Veterans will now have access to the latest endoscopy products on the market.
Under the agreement, UroViu will sell its entire product line at a contracted price for distribution exclusively through Fidelis to over 1,200 VA and DOD healthcare facilities throughout the United States that serve 9 million enrolled Veterans each year.
"Urology is the second most common indication by procedure volume in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) representing a large market for UroViu," said Sebastien Cadet, Chief Commercial Officer of UroViu Corp. "ECAT is the most convenient and cost-effective way to deliver our products to all government facilities. It is with great pride we can now efficiently support our Veterans."
Single-use endoscopy is a safer and more reliable alternative to traditional reusable scopes which must be cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized after every use. The difficulty of servicing traditional scopes has led to FDA scrutiny due to cross-contamination risks. UroViu's single-use scopes eliminate those risks. The single-use platform ranges from a 12-Fr diagnostic semi-rigid cystoscope and equivalent hysteroscope, a 14-Fr injection cystoscope with an integrated needle for drug delivery, to a flexible, deflectable, and rotatable 16.5-Fr cystoscope have the potential to help any government facilities improve care and efficiency.
"Fidelis' SDVDSB status provides UroViu with preferential access to secure VHA and DOD contracts," said Joel Kohn, President of Fidelis Sustainability Distribution, LLC. "More importantly, we help streamline the procurement process thus accelerating the delivery of cutting-edge technologies such as UroViu's single-use endoscopes that our Veterans deserve."
