Vidacare Corporation Launches the T.A.L.O.N.(TM) Intraosseous Vascular Access System

At the 2013 Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) in Fort Lauderdale, Vidacare Corporation will be launching the T.A.L.O.N.(TM) (Tactically Advanced Lifesaving Intraosseous Needle) Intraosseous Vascular Access System for military use. The T.A.L.O.N. system is a groundbreaking single needle solution for vascular access that provides combat life savers and medics with rapid and accurate manual IO access to seven FDA cleared IO sites -- proximal tibia (below the knee), distal tibia (ankle), proximal humerus (shoulder) and the sternum. The T.A.L.O.N. system is the first IO system to meet all Committee on Tactical Casualty Care (CoTCCC) recommendations for IO devices. T.A.L.O.N. provides rapid vascular access through the intraosseous (inside the bone) space and helps deliver vital fluids and drugs through this space, the body's non-collapsible vein, to injured soldiers safely and quickly. T.A.L.O.N. is a non-powered vascular access option that complements Vidacare's powered EZ-IO(R) Intraosseous Vascular Access System that is widely utilized in combat medicine. This system is designed to provide battlefield responders a tactical advantage needed in the combat zone via its lightweight and minimal cube design, proven ability to gain vascular access quickly and safely, and its versatility because no additional intraosseous vascular access gear or tools are needed. As with any vascular access site, the IO insertion site should be monitored frequently and the system should be used only when anatomical landmarks can be clearly identified and in accordance with the T.A.L.O.N. system's instructions for use. The T.A.L.O.N. system will be commercially available in the United States starting in early in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Vidacare Mulls Acquisitions

Vidacare Corporation expects $70 million of revenues in 2013 and plans to leverage that momentum, pursuing expansion and acquisition opportunities in the U.S. and abroad. Vidacare is looking to expand its presence in the biotech arena. "This opens up a chance for us to look at other products, and to look at acquisition opportunities," Mark Mellin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vidacare said. Vidacare is planning to secure a business development manager who will help identify acquisition opportunities.
